Helen Hull Hitchcock: A Valiant Voice for Faith and Family


The founder of Women for Faith and Family and the editor of the Adoremus Bulletin died Oct. 20 at the age of 75.

ST. LOUIS — Helen Hull Hitchcock, an influential Catholic laywoman whose name is forever associated with the fierce battles over the Catholic Church’s teaching on women that raged in the 1980s and her staunch advocacy for a renewal of beauty in the liturgy, has died at the age of 75.

May she rest in peace. Her writings were very important to me when I came back to full practice of Catholicism.
