Presenter: M. Catherine Hilkert, O.P.

In Evangelii Gaudium, all members of the Church are called to be missionary disciples.  Yet the testimony of faithful women, including that of Mary Magdalene who bears the title “Apostle of the Apostles,” frequently has been dismissed or relegated to the category of “unofficial” witness.  In her lecture, Sr. Hilkert explores the vocation of women to preach the Gospel with particular attention to the testimony of women in the Gospel of John and the preaching of Catherine of Siena, the only lay woman to have been named a Doctor of the Church. 

Sponsored by the School of Theology and Ministry

M. Catherine Hilkert, O.P. is professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame.
