 Experience of Giving Voice

“Giving Voice has provided me with a network of peers and friends in religious life who share similar dreams and hopes that I have.  The group has given me a chance to connect with others who believe in the future of religious life and were willing to take the risk and walk on the bridge together.”

 Hopes for Giving Voice

“I hope Giving Voice can continue to provide opportunities for younger women religious to share, dream, hope and act together.  Also that younger women religious will have a collective voice to speak their experience in today’s Church, religious life, the world and the cosmos. “
