The Catholic Worker movement was founded in New York City during 1933 by Dorothy Day. It is a network of about 240 houses and farms across the United States dedicated to serving those in need. The movement is interfaith and ecumenical, Bambrick-Rust says, and seeks to emulate the life of Jesus Christ through a life of poverty, service to others, and a challenging of the dominant religious and political authorities.

“We certainly did not imagine that would lead us to be living without electricity in rural Missouri,” Bambrick-Rust says.
Bambrick-Rust, his wife and their infant daughter, Johanna, live on the land semi-permanently, either in camping tents or, when the weather gets cold, in the workshop. […]
