The public events, held on four college campuses across the country, will be centered on a new book: The New Generation of Catholic Sisters by Sr. Mary Johnson, Sr. Patricia Wittberg and Dr. Mary L. Gautier. The book illuminates trends from a study (PDF) that highlights the impact of diversity on women’s religious life. The events will feature the book’s authors, as well as two panels of younger sisters and other lay women in ministry. These sessions will provide students and the public opportunities to learn more about contemporary Catholic sisters.
The recently published book and symposia will be important tools to raise the profile of the next generation of Catholic Sisters. The host colleges and symposia dates will be announced via the NRVC website. The book, The New Generation of Catholic Sisters, is available on Amazon.
