We are a community of people dedicated to living out the Gospel values of loving our enemies and attempting to take personal responsibility for the needy sisters and brothers in our society. We follow the tradition of the Catholic Worker movement. We believe in nonviolence as a way of life, gentle personalism, and the practice of the spiritual and corporal works of mercy. We choose to live a life of voluntary poverty.
We have two community houses where many of our volunteers stay and live in common. Lazarus House and Harmony House both offer hospitality. Our community members do not receive compensation for working at our houses, and many of them have jobs on the outside to provide for their own personal needs and the needs of the houses. Anyone who wishes to live a life of voluntary poverty, to dedicate their life to the needy and oppressed, and to live a life of nonviolence and gentle personalism and who is willing to live in community is invited to join the Casa Maria Community. We accept volunteers of any race, religion, or nationality.
