Two 20th Cent American female writers and thinkers offer two distinct Catholic visions of redemption. Dorothy Day writes with a gritty journalism. Living with disability, Flannery O'Connor's fiction was inspired by faith and her roots in America's South.
The retreat will involve close-reading an discussion of texts and audio-visual material, giving a brief introduction to these writers' work.
Participants will be encouraged to explore the work in the light of their own faith.
