Yale's Teresa Berger to Deliver O’Callaghan Lecture

Among the very distinct voices speaking at Fairfield University this fall is the prominent theologian Teresa Berger who will deliver the 13 th annual Anne Drummey O’Callaghan Lecture on Women in the Church, taking place Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at 7:30 p.m.

Dr. Berger, professor of Liturgical Studies at Yale Divinity School, will give a talk entitled, “ Women as Celebrants and Interpreters of Catholic Liturgy: From Sacrosanctum Concilium to Cyberspace.” Free and open to the public, the event will be held at the Quick Center for the Arts.

“This presentation will map the many ways in which both women’s lives and Catholic liturgy have changed significantly over the last fifty years,” said Dr. Berger, whose most recent book is “ Gender Differences and the Making of Liturgical History” ( Ashgate: Liturgy, Worship and Society, 2011). “It will highlight vibrant gains in these changes as well as some quite remarkable losses. Throughout, we will attend to the immense diversity of women’s voices as they have emerged and made themselves heard with regard to Catholic liturgy.”

Dr. Berger received the distinguished Herbert Haag Prize for Freedom in the Church in 2003. Her publications include “ Dissident Daughters: Feminist Liturgies in Global Context” (2001); “ Fragments of Real Presence: Liturgical Traditions in the Hands of Women” (2005); and a video documentary, “Wo rship in Women’s Hands” (2007). An active Roman Catholic, Berger has produced (with MysticWaters Media) a CD-ROM, “ Ocean Psalms: Meditations, Stories, Prayers, Songs and Blessings from the Sea” (2008); and she contributes to the liturgy blog, Pray Tell .

This lecture honors Anne Drummey O’Callaghan who worked tirelessly as a catechist, advocate for the intellectually disabled, youth minister, and director of religious education in the Diocese of Bridgeport.

This event is co-sponsored by the O’Callaghan Family, the Department of Religious Studies and the Center for Catholic Studies.
