Profiteering (Situations of Substance)

For over 200 years, the profit motive has dominated economic thought and practice. 

This evening will explore how the profit motive affects our personal, familial, social, ecological, and theological living.  We will propose responses that are in line with building a functional economy grounded in Christ’s love.

The spirituality of Catholic Worker cofounders Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin will be featured prominently in this program.

Tuesday, March 24, 2020

Cost is $10 for an evening, $35 for the series.
