Mother Dolores Hart: From Hollywood to Holy Vows
Mon, May 15, 2017, 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM EDT
“The Nun Who Kissed Elvis, Ditched Hollywood and Found her Calling.” Before making religious vows to become a nun, Mother Dolores Hart, OSB was a prominent actress in Hollywood. She is now a Roman Catholic Benedictine nun at the Abbey of Regina Laudis Bethlehem monastery in Connecticut. Last July 29, Mother Dolores Hart celebrated her Golden Jubilee and milestone of fifty years of vowed life. Mother Dolores will visit New York City to speak for the second time at the School of Visual Arts Theatre. The Leo House is proud to announce the return of such a dynamic speaker for another unforgettable event on May 15th, 2017.
