Those who want to learn more about notable female influence in the early Church are invited to Notre Dame High School, Lawrenceville, for a Feb. 24 presentation on women leaders at the heart of the Catholic faith.

The event will open at 6 p.m. in the Notre Dame Student Center with a soup and bread meal in observance of the Lenten season, followed at 6:30 p.m. with a talk by Father Jason Parzynski, diocesan vocations director and Notre Dame chaplain, who will speak on “Who’s Who of the Faith: The Women Who Shaped the Church.”

The presentation will explore the lives of four women doctors of the Church: St. Hildegard of Bingen, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Teresa of Avila, and St. Therese of Lisieux. Father Parzynski will talk about how these women shaped the Catholic Church through their personal holiness, deep understanding of the faith and personal contributions to the theological and philosophical understanding of Christ’s teachings. He will also explain what it means to be a doctor of the church and how one is declared, as well as how the teachings of these four women can aid us in our journey toward personal holiness.

Cost to attend is $10 per person. Registration is required at Notre Dame High School is located at 601 Lawrenceville Road.
