Malvern Retreat House will offer a Women’s Tea on “Dorothy Day and Benedictine Spirituality” on Sunday, Nov. 4 from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Theologian, educator and speaker Dr. Carmina Chapp will present an overview of the links between Day, an American journalist and Catholic social justice advocate, and monastic spirituality. Day, whose cause for canonization has been opened, was a Benedictine oblate and co-founder of the Catholic Worker newspaper and movement.
Chapp and her husband Larry started the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker Farm in 2013. Having learned of Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker Movement during her undergraduate years at the University of Notre Dame, Chapp admired the radical nature of Day’s commitment to her faith, and was inspired to try to imitate it. She earned her doctorate at Duquesne University, and began her academic career at DeSales University, later serving as academic dean at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Wynnewood, Pa.
The cost of the Women’s Tea is $25 per person. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit https://www.malvernretreat.com/events/womens-tea-10/?fbclid=IwAR33iOtNg67gTlQxAg8B_6dT57YntOqz-xJt4JQm7Lb8WDkXdE-NHqwB1H4
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
