Dorothy Day, as a child, was baptized in the Episcopal Church. She then journeyed a long and circuitous route through radical social and political terrain before embracing Catholicism and founding The Catholic Worker. Today the Catholic Worker movement continues to publish its paper, The Catholic Worker, for a penny a copy and opens its more than 200 Houses of Hospitality in the U.S. and abroad to the most vulnerable and marginalized among us. Dorothy Day profoundly believed we are called by God to love one another and followed Christ by practicing unstintingly the works of mercy and seeing Christ in each person she encountered.
