August 13 | 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
St. Isaac Jogues Church, 221 Knollwood Drive
Rapid City, SD 57701 United States
+ Google Map

Haunted by God is an acclaimed play by Paul Amandes, Lisa Wagner-Carollo, and Robert McClory about the co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement. Dorothy Day (1897-1980) spent 47 years caring for the poor and leading the Catholic Church to a more active concern for the needy in U.S. society. The Catholic Worker became a living movement that has been responsible for feeding and housing the homeless; and today, there are over 200 Catholic Worker houses around the world. Pope Francis praised Day in a speech to the U.S. Congress, saying, “Her social activism, her passion for justice and for the cause of the oppressed, were inspired by the Gospel, her faith, and the example of the saints.”
