Catholic Worker confronts new era

March 13, 2020

Margie Pfeil, Ph.D., faculty joint appointment in theology and the Center for Social Concerns, was recently featured in the National Catholic Reporter in connection to the Catholic Worker house in South Bend and Dorothy Day. The article, "Catholic Worker confronts a new era: As TV documentary spotlights Dorothy Day's legacy, today's Catholic Worker houses face new challenges", discusses how the Catholic Worker movement has evolved over the past 90 years. Pfeil specifically addresses the Catholic Worker in South Bend as a place of connection between many in the community who would not otherwise encounter each other. 

"She [Pfeil] sees Day's vision of 'Christian anarchy' — lots of little communities feeling called within their particular local contexts — as operating at a very specific scale as not to 'lose the possibility of that kind of relationality.'"
