Approximately 90 women religious leaders from the United States and Canada attended the recent LCWR New Leader Workshop held in Mundelein, Illinois from March 15 to 20.
Nancy Schreck, OSF served as the workshop facilitator, as well as a presenter, and was joined by faculty members: Janice Bader, CPPS; Judy Carey, RSM; Simone Campbell, SSS; Lynn Jarrell, OSU; and Lynn Levo, CSJ.
The days consisted of faculty presentations, prayer rituals, table sharing, and integration sessions where participants met as leadership teams. Those in attendance also reflected on their workshop experience via the LCWR "Behold, I am Doing Something New Contemplative Process," asking what might be emerging for religious life at this moment in history. A statement written by one of the workshop participants, Therese Ann Quigney, SSFCR is available as an attachment below.
The next New Leader Workshop is scheduled for March 21 to 24, 2013 in Mundelein.
