Amanda Clark, Ph.D., director of the library and associate dean of special programs at Whitworth University, will discuss “China’s Last Jesuit: Charles J. McCarthy, S.J., and the End of the Mission in Catholic Shanghai,” at 7 p.m., tonight in the Hemmingson Center Auditorium at Gonzaga University.
McCarthy studied at Gonzaga prior to being sent to the China mission. He was the last Jesuit sent to China before it became communist. He spent many years in prison in China before he was released and returned to the United States.
According to a press release, the lecture will examine the Jesuit missionary activity in China before communism, and will be highlighted by rare photographs both gathered by Clark in China and from Jesuit archives.
Clark wrote a book, published this year, also titled “China’s Last Jesuit: Charles J. McCarthy and the End of the Mission in Catholic Shanghai.”
The lecture, sponsored by Gonzaga’s Catholic Studies program, is free and open to the public.
