I don't know about you, but I continue to be astounded by how quickly the seasons change. Here we are, already at the end of August! While I am not sure where the summer has gone, I am looking forward to the new adventures in store this Fall as I move to a new city to begin graduate studies in theology.
This August, Kristin Matthes, SNDdeN transitions off of the Giving Voice Core team. Kristin has been a constant presence to Giving Voice from its very beginnings, serving both as the public face and behind the scenes organizer at the same time. While Kristin is no longer a member of the Core Team, she has graciously agreed to be available for questions and advice as she holds the history of Giving Voice and knows so many of you personally.
Sisters in their 20s & 30s are invited to join us for our annual peer-led retreat MLK Weekend at Our Lady of Guadalupe Monastery in sunny Phoenix, Arizona. Gather with other younger women religious for prayer, reflection, conversation and relationship building. Visit the GV website to
If you are a formation minister or in community leadership, encourage your younger members to attend! The connections they make will sustain them for years to come.
