Can declaring someone a Catholic saint be controversial?

Join us for the Fourth Annual Dorothy Day Lecture on Thursday, November 1, 2018 at 4:30 PM in the Alumni Room, O’Malley Library.

Daniel Cosacchi, PhD from Fairfield University, and Joanne Kennedy, from the Catholic Worker, will discuss the pros and cons of declaring Dorothy Day a saint.  Some Manhattan alumni will recall that Dorothy Day spoke at the College in the early 1960’s and was awarded the St. LaSalle Medal in 1974.

Michale Lee, PhD from Fordham University, will present on his experience attending the recent canonization of St. Oscar Romero, the Archbishop of San Salvador, who was assassinatedon March 24, 1980 while saying Mass.  

Information will also be available regarding the proposed canonization of Br. James Miller, FSC, from Custer, Wisconsin, who was assassinated on February 13, 1982, outside the Casa Indigena De La Salle in Huehuetenango, Guatemala.

This presentation is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
