About

Tradistae is a Catholic Worker organization committed to proclaiming and living the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the works of mercy, intentional community, liturgical tradition, and the struggle for social justice. Tradistae is based out of Holy Family House in Lancaster, PA, but has a number of friends and members, primarily throughout the United States.

We believe in the politics of virtue and the common good, and in pursuing the True, the Good, and the Beautiful in our governments, economies, and cultures. Above all, we believe in Catholic Social Teaching, as taught by the Social Encyclicals. Therefore, we reject both the right and left of modern politics and draw from the traditions of Thomism, integralism, liberation theology, and distributism (including its agrarian and ecological origins).

Our website exists to host resources on Catholic Social Teaching. Some of these are teaching tools, such as our easy essays and the Tradistae Podcast. We have other resources to inspire you in prayer and praxis, especially the spiritual and corporal works of mercy and the practice of intentional Christian community. We welcome all people of good will to join us in creating a better world through prayer, penance, and solidarity. Our friends at Catholic Social Action work with us to help organize these actions.
