guest contribution from Jeffry Korgen of the Dorothy Day Guild
Dorothy Day, founder of the Catholic Worker Movement, was a friend to workers throughout the 20th Century. Her promotion of worker justice extended from the IWW back in the early 20th Century, to her efforts, after her conversion to Catholicism, to promote Church support of unions and low-wage workers–from seamen in the 1930’s to farm workers in the 1970’s. She is currently a candidate for sainthood.
On December 8, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, at 7:30 p.m., Cardinal Timothy Dolan will complete the seven-year collection of evidence supporting her Cause for Sainthood and seal the boxes of evidence, bound in red tape, at a special Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City. Please note that this Cathedral Mass will be live-streamed (https://saintpatrickscathedral.org/live) for those who cannot attend in person. We hope you will be able to join us.
