About Us:Mary House altar with the Virgin of Guadalupe, the house patroness, in the center.

Mary House Catholic Worker welcomes critically and terminally ill adults to live until they are financially and medically stable, or until they die from a terminal illness. About one-third of our guests are recently middle-class people whose illnesses have outlasted their benefits and resources. We all live in a 2,400 square foot duplex that has a women's side and a men's side. Flowers, herbs and a few vegetables and berries grow in our gardens.

Affilliated with the international Catholic Worker Movement founded in 1933 by Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin, Mary House performs the Works of Mercy on the streets and at our House of Hospitality. Mary House Catholic Worker of Austin, Inc. is a nonprofit, 501(c).3 ministry.

Mary House receives money and in-kind donations (food, clothing, bedding, adaptive medical equipment, furniture and cars) from people of faith and good will, including many individuals and faith communities, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Austin and the Religious Coalition to Assist the Homeless. We welcome assistance- spritual, material and financial- on behalf of our destitute guests who are "Jesus in the distressing disguise of the poor"
(Mother Teresa).
