The 19th Annual Anne Drummey O'Callaghan Lecture on Women in the Church

Date: 10-02-2019

Time: 05:00 PM

Location: Dolan School of Business - Event Hall, Room L 01

Please join us for the Center for Catholic Studies’ 19thAnnual Anne Drummey O’Callaghan Lecture on October 2, 2019 at 5:00pm in the Dolan School of Business Event Hall.

The O’Callaghan Lecture on Women in the Church will be delivered by Tricia Bruce, PhD, from University of Notre Dame. Dr. Bruce is a sociologist of religion and an award-winning author.  Her lecture, “Carriers of Catholicism: Agents of a Future Church,” is part of an annual series that honors the legacy of Anne Drummey O’Callaghan, a catechist, youth minister, advocate for the intellectually disabled, and director of religious education for the Diocese of Bridgeport. 


In her presentation, Dr. Bruce will suggest to her audience that the relative stability of Catholics as a proportion of the U.S. population belies substantial change occurring within the Church. Through what and whom does the Catholic Church in America sustain this adaptation, and how? With a particular focus on women's roles, Dr. Bruce will consider the carriers of Catholicism —organizationally, materially, and individually — that move the Church forward into the future.


This event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
