Dr Elaine McDonald Public Lecture

You are warmly invited to attend a lecture on Bearers of a Dangerous Memory: The Prophetic Legacy of Mary Ward, presented by Dr Elaine McDonald, Head of Policy and Practice at Dublin City University. This free public lecture is open to all students, parents, ex-students, past parents, staff and friends of Loreto.

Dr McDonald will explore some elements of the life of Mary Ward that mark her out as a prophetic leader and introduce us to the resilience of the followers of Mary Ward in keeping alive her memory and vision. In doing this, she hopes that we will uncover parallels between the landscape of Mary Ward’s life and the landscape of our lives as ‘bearers of a dangerous memory’.
