Prayer Service at Birthplace of Dorothy Day

December 8, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm EST

Prayer Service at Birthplace of Dorothy Day: Wednesday, December 8 at 3:30pm at 71 Pineapple Street in Brooklyn Heights


In anticipation of the next stage of the canonization process of Servant of God Dorothy Day, join in a brief prayer and remembrance with her granddaughter Martha Hennesy who will be reading from her grandmother’s writings.  Dorothy Day’s pilgrimage on earth began in Brooklyn, NY when her mother Grace Satterly Day gave birth to Dorothy on November 8th, 1897 at 71 Pineapple Street.  Dorothy lived in the Brooklyn area for six years before moving with her family to Oakland, California in 1904.  While Dorothy Day is known for spending much of her life on Staten Island and especially the Bowery section of Manhattan as co-founder of the Catholic Worker Movement, her journey to sainthood began on Pineapple Street in Brooklyn.


Dorothy Day’s local investigation towards her cause for canonization has been completed.  On December 8th, 2021, (Feast of the Immaculate Conception) all the documents relevant to Dorothy Day’s cause for sainthood will be sent to the Vatican who will then complete the work towards her canonization.


The prayer service will be at Vineapple Cafe located at 71 Pineapple Street.  This event is sponsored by the Brooklyn Oratory Parishes  (St. Boniface and Assumption) and the New York City Catholic Worker Community.


Also on December 8th, 2021 St. Patrick’s Cathedral at 7:30pm will be hosting a special Mass for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception that will include celebrating the documents being sent to the Vatican towards Dorothy Day’s canonization.
