LCWR board to “discuss CDF Assessment”; plans to “move slowly”

The following has been posted on the LCWR site:

The national board of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious will meet May 29 – June 1, 2012 to begin its discussion of the conclusions of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith’s doctrinal assessment and the implementation plan put forth by that Vatican office. The board will conduct its meeting in an atmosphere of prayer, contemplation and dialogue and will develop a plan to involve LCWR membership in similar processes. The conference plans to move slowly, not rushing to judgment. We will engage in dialogue where possible and be open to the movement of the Holy Spirit. We ask your prayer for us and for the Church in this critical time.

Pat Farrell, OSF – LCWR President
Florence Deacon, OSF  — LCWR President-Elect
Mary Hughes, OP – LCWR Past-President
