St. Joseph

The Kalmanovitz Initiative invites you to a celebration for the 125th anniversary of Rerum Novarum (new window), the nineteenth century Catholic encyclical that laid the foundation of the Church’s teachings on labor and worker rights. The event will take place on Sunday, May 1, at the historic Our Lady of Queen Peace Church (new window) in Arlington and is being sponsored by the parish’s Labor & Income Inequality Team. KI Director Joe McCartin will be speaking about the significance of Rerum Novarum and Catholic social teaching on the dignity of workers more broadly. Dinner and drinks will be provided for those who attend.

The celebration, which will take place on the Feast Day of St. Joseph the Worker, will include a simultaneous Spanish Headset Translation. Please email Laura Bandini at (new window) with questions or requests related to disability as soon as possible. We hope you can join us!
