The Isaac Hecker Award for Social Justice will be presented to Joan Chittister on Saturday, March 6 by the Paulist Center in Boston. The Zoom event, scheduled for 7 p.m., includes a presentation by Sister Joan on Pope Francis’ encyclical, Fratelli Tutti. Named after the founder of the Paulist Fathers, the award is given annually to an individual or group in recognition of the outstanding commitment of a North American Catholic to building a more just and peaceful world. Past recipients include Dorothy Day, Cesar Chavez, Archbishop Hunthausen, and the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR).
