Saturday Morning Update

We gathered again on Saturday morning to launch into our theme for the day, Mission and Charism. As part of our morning prayer, we shared our founding stories and reflected on a wordle made from combining the mission statements of each religious community represented at the conference.

Alison Green, SSMO shares the story of the
Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon

After morning prayer, Sister Yolanda Tarango, CCVI helped us to break open the concept of charism as something that happens, an energy that comes out of our founding stories into today and the future.  We continued the conversation in our small circle groups and then closed the morning by listening to two Giving Voice Responders, Juliet Mousseau, RSCJ and Xiomara Méndez-Hernández, OP.
