6th Annual Karl Rahner Lecture
In honor of Father Jim Bacik
"Ordinary Grace: Human Life as Sacramental"
Thursday, May 31, 5:30-7 p.m.
Reception to follow
Karl Rahner is noted for speaking of “ordinary mysticism” as well as his insight on the experience of grace that can be discovered in every aspect of human life. Guest lecturer Mary Catherine Hilkert, O.P., draws on that insight by using the work of poets and saints to explore what it means to speak of ordinary human life as sacramental.
Mary Catherine Hilkert, O.P., a member of the Dominican Sisters of Peace, is Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame where she teaches in the areas of theological anthropology, Christology and feminist theology and spirituality. A former president of the Catholic Theological Society of America (2005-2006), Sr. Hilkert is the recipient of three honorary degrees as well as numerous awards for her contributions to the integration of academic and pastoral theology with particular attention to the voices of women. She has lectured and preached in Catholic and ecumenical contexts in the United States, Canada, Ireland, Australia and South Africa.
