Portland Catholic Worker

I went down to the Portland Catholic Worker’s Dorothy Day House this weekend, where I met Lisa Hughes and Father Jim Stephens. I was pleased to note it’s a vegetarian household.

The community is still going strong after two years, and seems to have a nice mix of activism and serving the poor.

In 2003, when I told Catholic Worker types I was from Worcester, they often asked, “Do you know Scott and Claire?” In 2005 and 2006, the number one question has been, “Do you know Christine Lavallee?” Lisa was the latest to ask.

  1. I have just moved to Oregon….couldn’t part with one of my best works…a floor to ceiling portrait of Dorothy Day….feel free to take a look on my facebook page….amy pollicino….need a good home for this mural….

  2. Hi, I know this is an old article but I’m just finding out about the Catholic Worker (I LOVE Dorothy Day!) and was considering becoming a volunteer here–especially as they are vegetarian (I’m vegan).

    Does this CW still exist?? I live in Portland, Oregon.
