Joan Chittister osb – Live in Melbourne
Tuesday, 8 September, 7:00 pm–9:00 pm AEST
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.
