About this Event

COVID-19 UPDATE: This event has been postponed effective 3/16/20.

How to describe Dorothy Day? Grandmother, anarchist, prophet, journalist, pacifist, saint? The FBI once considered her a threat to national security. Now the Catholic Church is considering her for sainthood. Revolution of the Heart: The Dorothy Day Story profiles one of the most extraordinary and courageous women in American history. She was co-founder (along with Peter Maurin) of the Catholic Worker Movement that began as a newspaper to expose rampant injustices during the Great Depression. It soon expanded to become a network of houses of hospitality to welcome the poor and destitute.

Post-event dessert reception to follow.

A film by Journey Films presented by Spirit & Place, Marian University, Center for Interfaith Cooperation, and WFYI Public Media with support from Lilly Endowment Inc.
