LCWR Members to discern response to Vatican at annual assembly

The Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) will meet for its annual assembly Aug. 7–11. Mary Hughes, OP (Amityville), past president of LCWR, and Barbara Blesse, OP (Springfield), secretary, are among the Dominicans who will be attending. Please keep all of the sisters in your prayers as LCWR membership discerns its response to the doctrinal assessment report released April 18 by the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. More information, including a “Prayer for LCWR,” is available on the LCWR web site. The Dominican Sisters Conference also recently received a letter of support from the Dominican friars of the Southern and Central provinces, and a letter of support from the Central Province Lay Dominicans.
