The L.A. Catholic Worker was highlighted in a National Catholic Reporter article about the diversity within the Catholic Worker movement. See this LINK to read the article.
An excerpt: “As advocates of decentralization, Catholic Worker co-founders Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin led by example rather than attempt to create a large organization structured around their ideas for transforming society.
Many of those who follow in their footsteps think both founders would be pleasantly surprised that the movement they started during the Great Depression is the inspiration for a loose network of nearly 250 communities today.
This decentralized, even anarchist, approach has led Catholic Worker communities to develop in a variety of formats and to carry out a spectrum of ministries that are limited only by their members’ interests, resources and creativity.”
