Catholic chaplain from Harvard discusses feminist journey

Jacqueline Landry, Catholic chaplain at Harvard University, will present a talk titled The Path is Made by Walking: A Catholic Feminist’s Journey as a Change Agent at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28, in Skelton Lounge, Chase Hall. Sponsored by the Chaplain’s office and part of the series Spiritual Journeys: Stories of the Soul 2001-02, the talk is open to the public free of charge.

Raised in a Catholic Worker community, Landry has spent her entire life asking and answering questions such as: Why would any woman stay in a patriarchal faith community? How does change best occur – outside institutions or in them? What does the future of women’s experience and leadership look like in the Catholic Church? Landry will discuss how these and other questions have formed and informed the spiritual journey of a contemporary Catholic woman.

Next in the Spiritual Journeys series is Stephen P. Huyler, freelance cultural anthropologist, author and photographer, who will discuss Meeting God: A Scholar’s 25-Year Encounter with Hinduism in India at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 5, in Skelton Lounge. The talk will be given in conjunction with Huyler’s exhibit Meeting God: Elements of Hindu Devotion in the Chapel, March 1-21. For more information, call 207-786-8272.
