NYC Meetings – Sep to Nov 2007

This entry is being written on September 10, 2007 and I just received my Aug/Sept 2007 issue of the Catholic Worker. Look for a full digest in the next week or so. Because I know I have at least one reader in the New York City area, I wanted to point out the CW Friday Night Meetings while that information is still useful.

All meetings begin at 7:45pm:

Sep 14 – Mary Ann Grady, Emad Bornat & Tito Kayak: The Palestinian Crisis.*
Sep 21 – Chris Zimmerman: Why forgive? Breaking the Cycle of resentment
Sep 28 – Michael True: Peacemaking & Interreligious Engagement*
Oct 5 – Dorothy C. Buck: Louis Massignon and the Badaliya Prayer — A Franciscan Inspiration
Oct 12 – War & Peace Update*
Oct 19 – Ed Gaffney: “Home” in Israel and Palestine.
Oct 26 – Bob Maat: A Continuing Journey of Nonviolence
Nov 2 – A Double Feature on Dorothy Day: Sarah Melici’s play & Claudia Larson’s Documentary
Nov 9 – Anna Brown: Etty Hillesum–The Language of the Incandesent Heart
Nov 16 – Marie Ponsot and Lawrence Joseph: Poetry against nonviolence

Why the meetings? I’ll let the Worker itself explain:

In keeping with Peter Maurin’s recognition of the need for ongoing
clarification of thought, we invite you to join us for our weekly Friday night
meetings. The meetings are held either at Maryhouse–55 East Third St,
212-777-9617, or St. Joseph House, 36 East First St, 212-254-1640. As far ahead
as we can see, those we will hold at First Street will be marked with an *. Feel
welcome to call and confirm the schedule. Both houses are between First and
Second Avenues (2nd Ave. stop on the F or V train).

So, if you’re within driving distance of New York, please attend if you can. If you do, would you leave a comment here or send an e-mail to dnlcornwall AT
