History Matters Visits the Catholic Worker

December 5, 2017

Thursday, November 30, History Matters visited the Catholic Worker located at 55 East Third Street in Manhattan.  Mr. Bill Griffin spoke about Dorothy Day and how her commitment to helping the poor led her to found the Catholic Worker. The Catholic Worker allows voluntary and involuntary homeless to have a place to stay and eat while preserving their human dignity.  Her dedication to helping those in need continues on today through the tireless efforts of volunteers like Mr. Griffin and the newspaper the Catholic Worker distributes. Thank you to Deacon Wagner for this excellent opportunity to learn about community service and human dignity.
