Name: FRIDAY SALONS AT 4 PM - Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker Movement
Date: March 3, 2017
Time: 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM CST
Event Description:
Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker Movement
Beth Kelly Ph.D, of DePaul University, introduces Dorothy Day (1897-1980), an American journalist, social activist, and devout convert to Roman Catholicism. She was one of the most interesting and controversial women of the 20th Century. In the 1930s, Day helped establish the Catholic Worker Movement, a pacifist movement that continues today to combine aid for the poor and homeless with nonviolent action on their behalf. Shortly after her death, an effort to have Day canonized as a saint was initiated; some view this as a contradiction of Day's own values and concerns.
