Obrero Católico de Oakland
"The so-called “illegals” are so not because they wish to defy the law; but, because the law does not provide them with any channels to regularize their status in our country – which needs their labor: they are not breaking the law, the law is breaking them."
Most Reverend Thomas Wenski, Bishop of Orlando
The Oakland Catholic Worker is a House of Hospitality offering transitional housing (up to 4 months) to Latin American Immigrants.
In the tradition of the Catholic Worker movement, we base our ministry of service on the practice of solidarity with the poor and disenfranchised.
We are a community and a community center of the Latin American immigrant and refugee community with the mission of:
Living simply in a community of multicultural volunteers and guests...
Serving the people most in need in our community...
