Gustavo Gutierrez Visits This Week

Gustavo Gutierrez will be lecturing in lovely New Haven this Thursday and Friday:

Fr. Gustavo Gutierrez, a priest of the Dominican order, is widely acknowledged as the “Father of Liberation Theology.” As a pastor, teacher and theologian, Fr. Gutierrez has worked to establish the “preferential option for the poor” as an essential dimension of Christian life. He is currently the Cardinal O’Hara Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame, and concurrently maintains his decades-long ministry in Lima, Peru, as a priest of Cristo Redentor parish, in the poor urban district of Rimac, and as a teacher and mentor through the Bartolome de las Casas Center, a theological institute he founded for students, ministers and researchers in Peru.
