Conversations about responding to change


In December and January Sister Deborah Borneman, SS.C.M., director of member relations and services, took part in focus groups organized by the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR).

The groups were part of the LCWR Emergent Planning Process—an effort to discern how women’s religious life can best respond to the current realities of the world and religious life today. Using videoconferencing, the design team met with various groupings of people across the country including: past presidents and executive directors of LCWR, directors of other organizations serving religious life, facilitators and consultants working with congregations of women religious, young women religious, religious of a variety of ethnicities and cultures, and members of the public from an array of fields, including healthcare, education, justice, and the media.

On February 18 and 19, the LCWR board, the design team, the LCWR staff, and 14 invited guests who lead many of the organizations serving religious life, participated in a charrette (a type of planning meeting) to review the input obtained from the focus groups with an eye to how religious life is changing. Sister Debbie represented NRVC at the charette as one of LCWR’s invited guests.
