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
