Sixty-six years ago the Catholic Worker movement began with the opening of a shared apartment as a house of hospitality and the selling of the Catholic Worker newspaper for a penny a copy in Union Square. It began amidst the Great Depression with millions out of work and the foundation of American capitalism crumbling. Most of all, however, the Catholic Worker began with the meeting of two persons: Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin. Their meeting was the effective beginning of the Catholic Worker movement and remains to this day the source of its inspiration.

In this diary, Marc H. Ellis recounts his spiritual journey among the poor in New York City in the early 1970s. What he witnessed at the Catholic Worker continue, to increase in our world today: homelessness, destitution, and other forms of poverty. Yet the spiritual life he experienced is even more real today as well-the commitment, hope and faith among the poor.

The inaugural book in a new series by Baylor University Press titled Literature and the Religious Spirit, this reprinted edition of A Year at the Catholic Worker includes an interview with the author that brings the reader up to date with Ellis's journeys as he looks back at his experience at the Catholic Worker and his time among the poor.
