Nobel Peace Prize nominee to preach and teach at Cathedral on Mother’s Day

Join us for a special Sunday event featuring renowned peace activist and author, Fr. John Dear. Fr. John will deliver sermons at 8am, 9:15am, and 11:15am masses on Sunday, May 12, followed by a talk at 10am on his groundbreaking new book, "The Gospel of Peace: A Commentary on Matthew, Mark, and Luke from the Perspective of Nonviolence."

"The life of peace is both an inner journey toward a disarmed heart and a public journey toward a disarmed world,” writes Fr. John. “This difficult but beautiful journey gives infinite meaning and fulfillment to life itself because our lives become a gift for the whole human race. With peace as the beginning, middle, and end of life, life makes sense.”

Renowned for his tireless advocacy for peace and nonviolence, Fr. John Dear has been praised by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize, and endorsed by figures like Thich Nhat Hanh, Joan Baez, and President Jimmy Carter, among others.

Don't miss this opportunity to engage with one of the most influential voices of our time on the transformative power of nonviolence. Copies of his new book will be available for purchase. Join us in embracing the path of peace and understanding.
