Joan Chittister osb – Live in Melbourne

Tuesday, 8 September, 7:00 pm9:00 pm AEST

This event is indefinitely postponed due to the Coronavirus situation.

The time is now – getting back on mission

Joan Chittister osb, an American Benedictine, and a Practical Theologian embodies the voice of wisdom and experience. Her prophetic views on justice and equality, especially for women in the church, challenge those who would silence women and people at the margins.

Through her call to uncommon courage she can help us re-discover the place of religion in our society through a spirituality of engagement, so that we can all work together to reform the clerical culture that has shattered so many and damaged us all.

Chaired by Dr Julia Baird 

Julia Baird is a journalist, broadcaster and author based in Sydney. She hosts The Drum on ABCTV and writes columns for the Sydney Morning Herald and the International New York Times. In 2018, Dr Baird was the recipient of the University of Divinity’s highest honour, the Doctor of Divinity honoris causa.
