About this Event

"But I am sure that God did not intend that there be so many poor. The class structure is of our making and our consent, not His. It is the way we have arranged it, and it is up to us to change it." -- Dorothy Day

Dorothy Day, the co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement, is on the verge of being canonized as a saint by the Catholic Church. But during her life, she said clearly, "don't call me a saint. I don't want to be dismissed that easily!" We must look at her life as a challenge and a call to put faith into action. She challenges us to question the racism and segregation that divide us against one another, and the economic system that allows a privileged few to live in extreme luxury while billions of people live in abject poverty or struggle just to pay the bills.

Join the Missouri Poor People's Campaign and Cherith Brook Catholic Worker as we watch the film "Revolution of the Heart: the Dorothy Day story."

Thursday, April 16th at 7:00 PM at Rockhurst University in Arupe Auditorium (53rd and Forest Ave. KCMO).

After the film we will be discussing ways for people to become more involved in the movement to end poverty, defeat racism, and win peace and justice for all!
