Guiseppe Conlon House

We are a community of the radical Christian “Catholic Worker” movement. The Catholic Worker is an ecumenical, pacifist, and anarchist movement founded by Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin in New York in 1933. As a community we are dedicated to living simply, in solidarity with those who are marginalised by society and in resistance to violence and injustice. The London Catholic Worker was brought together by the Jubilee Ploughshares 2000 disarmament action, in response to the need for a Catholic Worker community of hospitality and resistance in the world’s second imperial city.

Catholic Worker Farm

We here at The Catholic Worker Farm are working to support and accommodate destitute women (whom we call 'Guests'). These are vulnerable homeless women and children disentitled to benefits or work permits, literally "street homeless". The house is located near London, England, on a working farm, restored to suit the needs and comforts of our Guests, where we try to live each day by the love and values of Jesus Christ.
