CHAPLAIN'S CHATTER: THOUGHTS, REFLECTIONS AND MUSINGS FROM THE CATHOLIC CHAPLAIN

"The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution which has to start with each one of us?" ~ Dorothy Day

Greeting Everyone,

The above quote is from Dorothy Day who founded the Catholic Worker movement in 1933 during the Great Depression. Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker movement had a significant impact on the Catholic Church in the United States calling on Catholics to serve all people especially the poor.

When Pope Francis addressed Congress during his September visit to the US, he referred to Day as a model that all Americans should emulate. Pope Francis said ""In these times when social concerns are so important, I cannot fail to mention the Servant of God, Dorothy Day, who founded the Catholic Worker Movement. Her social activism, her passion for justice and for the cause of the oppressed, were inspired by the Gospel, her faith, and the example of the saints."


Don't know much about Dorothy Day? Well don't worry! This past Sunday would have been Day's 118th birthday. To celebrate her life and call to serve the poor, Dr. Harry Murray from the Nazareth Sociology Department will lead a discussion THIS Sunday after Mass. Come and learn more about this amazing Catholic women!

Spring Break Service Retreat sponsored by the Center for Spirituality

You are invited to spend your spring break with fellow Naz students, faculty, and staff along with children and families of Clairvaux Farm. We will take the week to work with Deep Roots Inc--doing projects around the farm and getting to know the people they serve as we learn more about poverty and homelessness and the ways in which we can make a true difference. If you are looking for an opportunity to serve and to explore the intersection of spirituality and social justice, then we hope you will consider joining us in March!


We will depart on March 6 at 9:00 am and return on Saturday March 12 in the early evening.


Cost is $100. Scholarships are available!
