Join Dorothy Day’s granddaughter, Kate Hennessy, as she discusses an “intimate portrait” of her famous grandmother. Her memories give a new and refreshing view of the co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement, a woman mentioned by Pope Francis in his visit to the US Congress and now under consideration for Roman Catholic canonization.

Kate Hennessy is a writer and the youngest of Dorothy Day’s nine grandchildren.

She has worked in collaboration with the photographer Vivian Cherry on Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker: The Miracle of Our Continuance, and her work has appeared in Best American Travel Writing.
