NYC: Feb/Mar 2009 Meetings

February 14, 2009

While I hope to get the January/February digest up this weekend, I wanted to make sure my New York City readers (any left?) knew about the following meetings at the Catholic Worker:

All meetings begin at 7:45pm:

Feb 20 Lindsey Davis: Update on Homelessness in New York City.

Feb 27 Dennis Halliday: Exceptionalism within the United Nations.

Mar 6 War and Peace Update.

Mar 13 Irmak Ertuna & Ted Walker: Technology, Cure or Curse?

Mar 20 Joyce Polistena: Liberal Catholicism in the Romantic Era–Eugene Delacroix and His Time.

Mar 27 Roger Haight, SJ: Evolution, Christian Spirituality and Social Justice.

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, please leave a comment here or send an e-mail to dnlcornwall AT alaska DOT net.
