Final Issue: Love Letters to Karen House


City Hope St. Louis has now officially taken over the hospitality work from the Catholic Worker community!   Contact them (info below) with questions on finding housing, donations, hours, and getting involved in the hospitality (and follow their page for announcements on the building rehab and fall re-opening!)

Our Karen House Facebook page will continue to post Catholic Worker-related topics, and also any requests we get from former guests.

The Karen House website will continue to offer a huge volume of resources on anti-racism work, consensus decision making, and Catholic Worker thought and action.

The St. Louis Catholic Worker community is filled with gratitude for the 40+ years we’ve had, and excited that our beautiful building will continue to offer love and shelter to those who most need it. Thank you for being part of our extended family!
