March 15, 2017 No Comments

In this lecture from the 2007 Deep in History Conference, the late Helen Hull Hitchcock, a leading voice on liturgy and women in the Church, presents a picture of what Catholic life looked like in the colonial days of what would become the United States.  Tackling questions of religious liberty, liturgical life, and the politics of the day, Helen gives key insights into the way the earliest Catholics to reach the New World established themselves in what was often a hostile environment.
