DOROTHY DAY: FAITH IN ACTION
Led by Bill Lonneman
What comes to mind when you think of Dorothy Day? Faithfulness, conscientious action and compassion —she was a model of 20th century Catholicism, a woman who loved deeply, a prophetess who spoke and witnessed the truth, both to the church and the state. We will explore together a few of the patterns in her spirituality, reflecting on her relevance for our lives.
