Winter invitation: Join us to study Dorothy Day

Dorothy Day (1897-1980) was an American activist, writer and Catholic convert who co-founded The Catholic Worker Movement in the 1930s. Long considered a radical and controversial champion of social justice, the cause for her beatification has been opened in 2021. 

This winter, we invite you to join a small study group planning to read Dorothy Day’s autobiography The Long Loneliness. We will meet over the course of six evenings to discuss the book, its ideas and a few questions posed beforehand. No prior knowledege is required, and all are welcome!

Meeting times:  Every second Monday at 6.30-7.30 (we may order dinner afterwards 🙂

Place: Murstenslokalet (access through the chapel behind the church

Dates: 01/ 23, 02/6, 02/20, 03/02, 03/ 20, 04/03. 

Questions? Contact n.w.mottelson@gmail.com

For the meeting on Jan 23 there is no need to read anything, but on the following days we discuss the chapters we have read for that day (roughly 50 pages pr. meeting). At one of the meetings, we will also meet online with a person from The Catholic Worker who knew Dorothy Day.

No signup required – just show up!
