Dr. Deborah Savage, will present on “Woman as Prophet: A Feminism for the 21st Century” as part of the ongoing speaker series hosted by Catholics United for the Faith’s St. Catherine of Siena Chapter. Dr. Savage teaches philosophy and theology at the St. Paul Seminary School of Divinity at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minn. She received her doctorate in religious studies from Marquette University, and is a student of Saint Thomas Aquinas with a particular interest in investigating his thought in light of contemporary questions. Her research interests are especially focused on looking at the personhood of men and women.
Dr. Savage is a recognized scholar of the work of Saint Pope John Paul II and she has written and presented extensively on his understanding of human work, the complementarity of man and woman, and of the dignity and vocation of women.
Dr. Savage is the co-founder of the Siena Symposium for Women, Family, and Culture, an interdisciplinary think tank that is organized to respond to Pope John Paul II’s call for a new and explicitly Christian feminism.
Join us Thursday, June 20 in the upper room banquet hall at Gallo’s Mexican Restaurant in Anchorage. Doors open at 6:30 pm for those who would like to order food and drinks. The presentation will begin at 7 pm followed by Q&A. To learn more about CUF’s Anchorage Chapter, visit the St. Catherine of Siena Chapter Facebook page.
