​​"I have nothing but praise and gratitude for the corporal and spiritual works of mercy carried out by the Oakland Catholic Worker in our diocese. It's an honor to have such a fine Catholic organization in our diocese."

Bishop Michael Barber, Diocese of 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." 

Archbishop Thomas Wenski, Archdiocese of Miami

The Oakland Catholic Worker is a House of Hospitality offering transitional housing (up to 4 months) to Latin American Immigrants.
