Women making a difference

Day1A six-week series of lectures at The Lay Centre will explore the unique contribution women have made to the Church. It will focus on some of the women Doctors of the Church: Catherine of Siena, Thérèse of Lisieux and Teresa of Avila. The program will include some recent women, as diverse as Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Dorothy Day, and Flannery O’Connor.

Paul Murray, O.P., Míceál O’Neill, O.Carm., Patrizia Morgante, Michael Paul Gallagher, S.J., and Donna Orsuto will lead the sessions. They will explore together creative ways women and men might make a difference in the Church and in society in the 21st century by sharing the Gospel of Joy together. The last session, designed as a workshop, will include a medieval luncheon that includes cooking ideas from Hildegard of Bingen.

The weekly meetings start on 16 October, from 9:30 to 12:00. The other dates are 23, 30 October and 6, 13 and 20 November 2014.
