pr_tberger13Mark your calendars, this upcoming event may be of interest to our WGSS students!

On Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at 7:30 p.m., prominent theologian Teresa Berger will deliver Fairfield University’s 13th annual Anne Drummey O’Callaghan Lecture on Women in the Church – a free and public event held in memory of a Norwalk, Connecticut woman who was a lay minister in area Catholic parishes.

Dr. Berger, professor of Liturgical Studies at Yale Divinity School, will give a talk entitled – “Women as Celebrants and Interpreters of Catholic Liturgy: From Sacrosanctum Concilium to Cyberspace.” Taking place at the Quick Center for the Arts, the event is co-sponsored by the O’Callaghan Family, Fairfield University’s Department of Religious Studies and the Center for Catholic Studies.

“This presentation will map the many ways in which both women’s lives and Catholic liturgy have changed significantly over the last fifty years,” said Dr. Berger, whose most recent book is “Gender Differences and the Making of Liturgical History” (Ashgate: Liturgy, Worship and Society, 2011). “It will highlight vibrant gains in these changes as well as some quite remarkable losses. Throughout, we will attend to the immense diversity of women’s voices as they have emerged and made themselves heard with regard to Catholic liturgy.”
