Fr. Chuck addresses the Catholic Theological Union graduates of 2014

In May Catholic Theological Union conferred an honorary doctorate of ministry degree on Fr. Chuck Dahm, OP, for his outstanding ministry to the poor and oppressed. In receiving the degree, Fr. Chuck reviewed his years of ministry, beginning with university students in Bolivia, then working for peace and justice at the 8th Day Center for Justice, and finally serving Hispanic immigrants at St. Pius V. “Along the way I learned more from those I served than I could ever learn from books. The poor helped me see things from their perspective: as God demonstrated a preferential option for the poor in the bible, so I and the church must stand unconditionally with the poor.” Congratulations Fr. Chuck!
