Sandy Aftermath: NY Catholic Workers seem OK

This article appears in the Hurricane Sandy feature series. View the full series.

In New York City, both St. Joseph House and Mary House, Catholic Worker communities located on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, were without power Monday with no information about when it would be restored, said Roger O'Neil, a long-time St. Joseph House community member. Peter Maurin Farm, a Catholic Worker farm located north of the city in Marlboro NY, reported no damage or power outage.

However, Casa de la Paz, a Catholic Worker community on Eastern Long Island in Wyandanch NY, could not be reached by telephone, likely because of power being cut off.
