Book Club – Dagger John-Archbishop John Hughes and the Making of Irish America
Join other parishioners in a discussion of Dagger John – Archbishop John Hughes and the Making of Irish America by John Loughery.
” This delightfully written book introduces the transformation Catholic figure, John Hughes. John Loughery’s astute analysis and adept storytelling conjure up not just the extraordinary man himself but the boisterous social and political worlds through which he moved. Anyone who wants to understand the place of the Irish in nineteenth-century America must read Dagger John.”
– Catherine O’Donnell, author of Elizabeth Seton: American Saint
