Pray for the Sisters
Leadership Conference of Women Religious
Holds 2012 Assembly Aug. 7-10
Vatican mandate to be discussed
Please offer your prayers of support, and encourage others to do the same, as leaders representing tens of thousands of nuns across America gather for the Leadership Conference for Women Religious 2012 Assembly
, Aug. 7-10 in St. Louis. Uppermost on their agenda will be the April 18 Vatican mandate that they reform according to a recent doctrinal assessment of their activities.
Voice of the Faithful has supported and continues to support our sisters against the Vatican's crackdown:
- VOTF financially supported the Nuns Justice Project website.
- Our members have taken part in scores of rallies across the nation supporting the sisters.
- VOTF immediately issued a national statement to the media and posted it on its blog in support of the sisters and has posted many subsequent blogs supporting our nuns.
- VOTF was involved in the effort to collect more than 60,000 signatures on an online petition showing solidarity with our nuns.
Now enlist the power of prayer as our sisters chart their future in the Catholic Church.
