Franciscan University Presents
The American Catholic Story

Dynamic Catholic speaker and author Emily Stimpson shares insights on the history of Catholic Church in America. Why, as a Church, have we forgotten so much of our history? Can comparisons be made between the early American Catholic Church and the Church now? What contributions did Dorothy Day, St. Katherine Drexel, the Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen, and others make to our country? What lessons can Catholic Americans learn from our ancestors?

Stimpson’s clear approach to these and many more issues stems from the unique book she co-wrote, The American Catholic Almanac: A Daily Reader of Patriots, Saints, Rogues, and Ordinary People Who Changed the United States, which she discussed in depth with host Michael Hernon, vice president of Advancement at Franciscan University, and panelists Dr. Regis Martin and Dr. Scott Hahn of Franciscan University’s Theology Department.

Sunday, September 6, at 10:00 p.m. ET Thursday,  September 10, at 5:00 a.m. ET
