"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.
