Going Home Like a Shooting Star: Thea Bowman’s Journey to Sainthood

October 20, 2022 |

“Going Home Like a Shooting Star: Thea Bowman’s Journey to Sainthood,” presents the riveting life of Sister Thea Bowman, an African American Catholic Franciscan Sister who used her powerful gifts to educate and challenge the church and society to grow in racial inclusivity. Her skills of preaching, music, and teaching moved many Catholics to begin to confront their own racism while she urged her African American brothers and sisters to claim their gifts and share their “fully functioning” personhood. Thea worked tirelessly to proclaim this message until her untimely death from breast cancer in 1990.
