Hospitality House - Casa Milagro

The Hospitality House was located at 2428 L Street, San Diego CA 92102, and had one large kitchen, a good sized entrance and living room, and three bedrooms, two downstairs, and another large one upstairs, and two bathrooms. The decision to open a House of Hospitality in San Diego was made in August, 2008. The House was the focal point of all Catholic Worker activities in the city. It also provided opportunities for the regular stream of requests we get from people who want to serve the poor. Two or three people lived in the house as a core community working in conjunction with the larger San Diego Catholic Worker group. Just as every one of the 188 Catholic Worker groups throughout the world is different from the others, so the San Diego House of Hospitality reflected the unique spirit of San Diego and was a service to people in need. The house was a place where hospitality was practiced. Everybody felt welcomed and embraced. There was no set plan for the house; it grew in response to the needs of the people in the area and the prompting of the Holy Spirit. Whereas the house had been made possible by the owner giving us a generous break on the rent and the contribution of our benefactors, it put a strain on our regular finances. The decision was made to close the Hospitality House in 2016.
