Annual Fall Lecture – Thea Bowman: Faithful and Free

October 20 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM UTC-5

Dear William,

In this talk, Father Maurice Nutt, C.Ss.R, will share the remarkable story of Sister Thea Bowman, the granddaughter of enslaved persons who converted to Catholicism at age nine and later joined the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration.  Father Nutt captures Thea Bowman as she was: an unapologetically African American woman, a religious sister who deeply loved God and the people to whom she ministered through teaching, preaching, and singing, and who embraced the blessing of her ancestry, the wisdom of the “old folks,” and a passion for justice and equality for all God’s children.
