"Dorothy Day at St. Procopius September, 1954", Benedictine University Archives
Dorothy Day visited St. Procopius Abbey twice.
She was highly influenced by Fr. Chrysostom who gave a retreat at MaryFarm and then celebrated the Byzantine Liturgy with them.
Dorothy Day has been called many things: an activist, a journalist, a radical, a bohemian, a mother, a convert, a mystic, a prophet, a faithful daughter of the Church. After her death in 1980, historian David O’Brien famously called her “the most important, interesting, and influential figure in the history of American Catholicism.”
