At the beginning of the month, Giving Voice Sisters attended Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), participating in the opening ceremony, exhibiting with other organizations, and partaking in small-group discussions with leadership from LCWR communities.
Two of our participants, Sister Julia Walsh and Sister Mary Perez, also coordinated Facebook-live interviews with LCWR President Sister Jayne Helmlinger and Past LCWR-President Sister Teresa Maya. Sister Julia & Sister Mary engaged our sisters who could not be at LCWR in-person by asking our network to send their questions through comments on our social media pages.

Giving Voice Sisters were also thrilled to greet and chat with Sister Norma Pimentel, who was this year’s Leadership Conference of Women Religious recipient for Outstanding Leadership Award.
Once again, Giving Voice enjoyed spending the week with organizations we often partner with, Communicators for Women Religious, National Religious Vocation Conference, and Religious Formation Conference and engaged in fun activities at the booths, including taking “selfies” and sharing on social media.
Thank you to everyone who joined us at LCWR and to Sister Jayne Helmlinger & Sister Teresa Maya for your time & wisdom to share with our network!
