Welcome to Support Our Sisters
On April 18, 2012 the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith released a doctrinal assessment of the Leadership Conference of Women's Religious (LCWR) in the United States. The assessment was on the heels of an in-depth investigation of women's religious orders in the United States. Many Roman Catholic sisters are saddened and demoralized by the recent assessment.
The purpose of this blog is to provide a forum to show support for our sisters, women who have given their lives to serve others through education, social services, nursing, legal advocacy, lobbying, spiritual direction, prison ministry etc.
Please consider purchasing awareness bracelets for your parish or special interest group. I have provided a link to the right of this post so you can order bracelets and distribute them to your community. The awareness bracelets can be a symbol of solidarity with the sisters who have so generously given their lives in the service of others.
