The Catholic Worker Movement in NOLA

Saturday, March 11, 2017

Featuring Katie Kelso and John Yevtich

Katie and John will discuss how the Catholic Worker movement allows for living out the teachings of the Gospels in everyday life.

They  will  share  the  history  of  the  movement  in  general  as  well  as  in  New  Orleans.  Also, they will explain what specifically the New Orleans Catholic Worker does.

The St Thomas House of Hospitality of the New Orleans Catholic Worker is one of over two hundred Catholic Worker communities.

Katie and John are a married couple whose involvement with the Catholic Worker movement began in 2009 at the Los Angeles community. They have been in New Orleans about a year and a half. Along with running St Thomas House, they are involved in some local social justice oriented groups - Take ‘em Down NOLA, Black Lives Matter, Pax Christi, Justice for Eric Harris, New Orleans Workers Group and the J20 Coalition. They both have a history of participating in non-violent direct action and continue to work for peace.
