Patrick J. Hayes

Fordham University Press

Patrick Hayes explores an early expression of Catholic Action in the City of New York manifested by members of the city’s Catholic Club, an organization of educated and well-heeled Catholics devoted to cultural uplift and civic advocacy between 1888 and 1933. Within the Archdiocese of New York, its members stood with Cardinal Patrick Hayes on issues ranging from Mexico’s persecution of its Catholic population to the peddling of indecent literature. As a form of Catholic Action, its mission field was not so much in the streets as in the boardroom, the press, the courts, and City Hall. The chapter focuses on the collaboration between the Club and Cardinal Hayes, with a particular focus on the launch of the Catholic Charities campaign.
