Jonah House: Fifty Years of Experiment in the Beatitudes
June 10 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm EDT
June 10, 10 AM-12:00 EDT
The Daniel Berrigan Collective invites you to a celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the founding of Jonah House. In June 1973, Phillip Berrigan, Elizabeth McAlister and companions began what they called “an experiment in the Beatitudes.” It was later named Jonah House because, “If God could use Jonah for the works of justice, there is hope for each of us. Are we not all reluctant prophets?” Join us for a celebration, a Jonah House reunion, in which we will feast on images and hear voices from across Jonah House’s 50 extraordinary years of community, nonviolence, and resistance.
