The Life and Thought of Dorothy Day - Presented by Dr. Joseph Torma

Date(s): Apr. 17, 2013 - Apr. 17, 2013
Event Time: 7 PM - 8:30 PM

Part of "The Saints: Five Catholic Thinkers Who Challenged the Church," a five-part series on great Catholic thinkers.

A Catholic historian has called Dorothy Day "one of the most influential Catholics of the twentieth century." She, along with her mentor Peter Maurin, started a newspaper in New York City (the Catholic Worker), and a social movement of direct service and social resistance, on May 1st, 1933. The movement has about 200 houses dedicated to the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. She has been proposed for sainthood by the most recent gathering of the American Catholic Bishops.

Location: Barrette Business and Community Center

This lecture is free and open to the public. It is part of the Lifelong Learning Academy, a program of the Walsh Theology Division which encourages members of the community to share in high quality ongoing academic presentations taught by faculty of the University. Recognition is granted for 15, 30 and 45 hours of participation. No reservation is needed to attend.
