Jeff Dietrich in Jail

Today Jeff went to court to be sentenced for his March 20th action commemorating the third anniversary of the Iraq War. He told the judge that he pled proudly guilty of protesting this immoral and illegal war, and was sentenced to 30 days in LA County Jail. After lunch with Catherine and the rest of the community he turned himself in at 3PM.

The Open Door turns 25

In a joyous occasion last week one of our sister houses the Open Door Community in Atlanta Georgia celebrated their 25th birthday. Our very own Jeff Dietrich was there and spoke about the importance of hospitality and toilet cleaning. He also presented them with the Los Angeles Catholic Worker Harsh and Dreadful Award. Happy birthday to all of you folks!

Protest at the Kitchen

On Tuesday July 11th the Central City East Association sent a truck, crew, cops and a steam machine along with television and newspaper crews to roust our friends off Gladys St. In front of the Kitchen, a group of community members and friends took the opportunity to blockade the truck. They were immediately surrounded by the cops and the press. This lasted about an hour until the city backed down and the truck was abandoned to the cheers of our guests at the Kitchen.

Summer is in full swing here in Los Angeles. We’ve had several great speakers and a fun 4th of July party at the house of former summer intern Mary Nalick. We were also delighted to welcome former community member Sheena Tseko, her partner Juan Ramon Prado Bustamante and their soon to be born baby, who visited us from Mexico. Our part time community member Patty Carmody hosted a lovely baby shower with lots of good food and old friends. Photos of these events can be seen at:

We have Four New People Visiting us

Over the last month or so we have been very pleased and excited to welcome to the LACW our pre-summer program visitors. Tiffany Au is visiting us as part of an internship program through her school Grinnell College. Chris Rooney is visiting us from Vancouver, Canada where he volunteers and works on their newspaper the Christian Radical. Rebekah Land is here visiting us from the St. Francis CW in New Zealand. Last, but not least Ed Pilolla is a local guy who started volunteering at the kitchen, which he just couldn’t get enough of so now he is spending a month with us.

Thousands March in Los Angeles

Los Angeles Catholic Workers in May Day Immigrant Rights March
 

Several members of the Los Angeles Catholic Worker joined the thousands who marched down Broadway to city hall in support of immigrant rights, and oposition to any proposed anti-immigrant legislation. I was able to climb on top of a newspaper vending maching and was able to take a few photos of the massive crowd. The community members were joined this morning by our friend Bob Gomez from Dolores Mission Church and Pius O’Neill who flew in to Los Angeles yesterday and plans to stay with us for at least a month. What a warm welcome to our city it was. Photos of the event can be seen at: http://lacatholicworker.org/g/Los_Angeles_Immigrant_Rights_March/
