US bishops to consider Dorothy Day’s canonization cause

Catholic World News - November 12, 2012

During their fall meeting in Baltimore, members of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops will be consulted on the cause of canonization of Dorothy Day (1897-1980), co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement.

Vatican norms require that bishops on at least a regional level be consulted about the advisability of canonization causes. Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York has requested that the nation’s bishops be consulted about Day’s cause.
