Dorothy Day (1897-1980)

Who Was Dorothy Day?

Dorothy Day was a passionate fighter for helping the poor, for peace, for upholding the dignity of human life overall, and, in her words, for helping to bring about “the kind of society where it is easier to be good.” 

Having served so fully as the hands and feet of Christ, she is called a “model of conversion” and “servant of God” by the Catholic Church, which is considering her for sainthood. Today thousands revere her, study her life, and carry on her work.
