Interested in continuing education no matter your ministry or time availability? Giving Voice has recently purchased a 6-20 user subscription to SLIconnect, the education ministry of Saint Luke Institute. It offers online resources, some free, geared towards growing Catholic clergy, religious and lay leadership and is designed by experts in psychological and spiritual health.
Every two years, Giving Voice hosts a National Gathering to give opportunities for Catholic Sisters under age 50 to build relationships and provide a space to dream together. The pandemic required us to put our gathering on hold last year, so we are incredibly excited to announce our first National Gathering in three years! The theme of our 2022 gathering is Stir into Flame the Gift of Global Sisterhood.
Reflections on this year's retreat for sisters in their 20s & 30s come from Amanda Carrier, RSM and Kristen Forgotch, ASC.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this year's annual appeal. As of December 21, 2021 we have received donations from more than 50 different communities and individuals totaling close to $20,000!
It is still possible to donate via check or online. Donations of any and all sizes are greatly appreciated.
