Membership and How to Join

Joining the Guild is a simple, direct way for someone to acknowledge the ultimate significance of Dorothy Day’s life and uphold her cause for sainthood.   In turn, the steady growth of Guild membership points to the vitality of grassroots support.  We envision developing a national network of support, one that crisscrosses and connects the country, like the interminable Greyhound buses Dorothy once took to visit Catholic Worker houses.

Membership in the Guild includes an annual offering of dues.  They will be used to offset the basic costs of maintaining the Guild office, as well as the expense of producing quarterly newsletters and informing members of events and new developments.

Catholic Charities is currently assisting the Dorothy Day Guild with memberships. You may complete the Membership Form - indicating the appropriate level of dues shown under Gift Amount” – and submit online.

(If you prefer to submit by mail, please use this special “Mail-in only Membership Form”)

As part of membership, we invite you to consider serving as a representative of the Guild in your local parish, school, or peace or social justice group (for more information, see Serving as a Guild Representative). We need your help to ensure that the story of Day’s life continues to be told, that her witness continues to challenge and inspire.

Always, our deep thanks for your support and commitment!

P.S. You may also want to make a tax-deductible donation (over and above your membership dues). Just return to the Membership Form and fill in again but this time, insert an amount of your choosing in the “OTHER” box under “Gift Account,” indicating its frequency, and submit online.

For more information, see the Make a Donation page.
