The 14th  Annual Anne Drummey O’Callaghan Lecture on Women in the Church
"Cuentame: Counting (and Recounting) the  Latino Presence in US  Catholicism."
Natalia Imperatori Lee, Ph.D. - Manhattan  College
Wednesday, October 1, 2014, 7:30 p.m.
Dolan School of Business Dining Room - Fairfield University**
Dr. Imperatori-Lee’s research interests  focus on Catholic ecclesiology, in particular the intersection of  popular religion, devotion, ecclesial identity. She is also interested  in issues in U.S. Latino/a theology, including the intersection of  Mariology and ecclesiology, theological trends in the Catholic Spanish-speaking world, and the relationship of women, the poor and other marginalized groups to church structure and governance.
The Anne Drummey O'Callaghan Lecture On Women in the Church began in October of 2001 with speaker Elizabeth A. Johnson, C.S.J., Ph.D.
This lecture honors the memory of Anne O'Callaghan, who dedicated herself to religious education,  especially as it relates to liturgy.
She served as youth minister and director of religious education at both St. Jerome and St. Joseph parishes in Norwalk. Active on numerous catechetical boards and committees of the Diocese of Bridgeport, she was chair of BRED, the professional association of Bridgeport Religious Educators. She was  particularly interested  in church history and was passionate about the role of women in the  church.
This lecture series is designed to acknowledge the  advanced role of women in the church and provide a forum to converse on other important religious issues.
**Please note change of location from  previous years when held at the Quick Center.
