From Our Leadership Team

Celebrating the feast of the Assumption during our August 14-15 meeting invited us to pray: “You have changed my life . . . and spread before me your vision of fragile simplicity.”[1] We felt the presence of Mary, our sister and mother, as well as all our sisters who have gone before us.

In other matters,

  • The President of the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization has invited Sr. Joan Curtin to give a Breakout Session at the II International Congress on Catechesis in Rome September 20-23. Congratulations, Joan!
  • Sr. Mary Anne Foley will replace Sr. Carmel Caputo on the Board of the Hartford-based Collaborative Center for Justice.
