Recent news and updates

No matter how I come to a Giving Voice event, I go forth somehow both lighter and more grounded.  The recent 20s and 30s retreat on the theme of prophetic hope was no exception.  More than forty women religious gathered over Zoom this past weekend, January 15 – 17, 2021, led by Kelly Moline, OP and Sarah Cieplinski, SNDdeN.  From shared prayer to shared dance parties, our time together offered glimpses into what it means for each of us to live with prophetic hope. 
From January 15-17, Giving Voice sisters in their 40’s went on a virtual retreat. I joined 29 sisters from other religious communities in reflecting on the theme Remain Connected In Me. Having recently turned 40, I graduated to a new age group. I enjoyed meeting new sisters.
Catholic Extension is partnering with The Leadership Collaborative and Giving Voice to give $1,000 to 100 sisters to help those most impacted by coronavirus and the current financial struggles we're facing.
