LCWR Contemplative Greeting Cards

$10.00

This set of 10 folded blank cards offer a means to share a contemplative insight while sending a greeting. The insights on each card are the fruit of the prayer and reflection of leaders of communities of Catholic sisters during a recent LCWR assembly. The set of 10 sells for just $10.00, and the proceeds assist LCWR in its mission to provide education and support to its nearly 1400 members as they lead their communities.
