Helping the Homeless in St. Louis and a Conversation on the Canonization of Dorothy Day

On this week’s episode of Just Love, Monsignor Kevin Sullivan

Anthony D’Agostino, Ed.D. is the Chief Executive Officer of the St. Patrick’s Center – a homeless services organization in St. Louis that is an affiliated agency in the Catholic Charities of St. Louis Federation. Anthony talks to us about the work of the St. Patrick’s Center and how, through initiatives like its Hospital to Housing Program, it helps to transform the lives of homeless individuals and families through the pandemic and beyond.

George B. Horton is the Director of the Department of Social & Community Development of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York, where he oversees the Cause for the Canonization of Dorothy Day. During this lead-up to the sentencing of Dorothy Day’s granddaughter, Martha Hennesy, and other members of the Kingsbay Plowshares 7, for civil disobedience they participated in at the Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base in Georgia back in 2018, George shares with us a bit about both the progress of the Cause of Canonization of Dorothy Day, as well as reflecting on the witness of her granddaughter Martha Hennesy in living in imitation of her grandmother’s life of active non-violence.
