Australian organization of women religious signals support for LCWR

Catholic World News - May 04, 2012

An organization of Australian women religious has sent a message of support to their American counterpart, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), which has been the target of a Vatican investigation and a call for general reform.

In a message to LCWR leaders, Sister Anne Derwin, the president of Catholic Religious Australia, praised the LCWR for “conducting this discussion calmly, without judgment and in an atmosphere of prayer, contemplation and dialogue.” In her letter Sister Derwin acknowledged that the LCWR has not yet issued a public response to the Vatican’s call for reform. But she said that a calm and prayerful dialogue “is the norm for you.”
