Dr. C. Vanessa White, assistant professor of spirituality and ministry at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, will deliver “Journeying with the Saints: Black Catholics on the Road to Sainthood” as the inaugural Cyprian Davis Lecture in St. Bede Theater at Saint Meinrad Archabbey.

White is co-editor of a book of prayers (with Dr. Cecilia Moore and Fr. Paul Marshall, SM), Songs of the Heart and Meditations of the Soul, and contributing author for Amoris Laetitia: A New Momentum for Moral and Pastoral Formation. She is also a regular contributor to the daily prayer journal Give Us This Day, as well as inaugural contributor to the web-based Catholic Women Preach series.

This inaugural event is named for Fr. Cyprian Davis, OSB, who was a professor of Church history at Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology. His award-winning book, The History of Black Catholics in the United States, is regarded as the essential study of the American Black Catholic experience. He was a founding member of the National Black Catholic Clergy Caucus and a contributor to Brothers and Sisters to Us, the 1979 pastoral letter on racism published by the United States Catholic bishops. He died in 2015.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Parking is available at St. Bede Hall and in the Guest House and student parking lots.
