In May, LCWR members participated in one of two 75-minute sessions about the experience of newer members in religious life. Following input from Debbie Borneman, SSCM, executive director of the National Religious Vocation Conference; Ellen Dauwer, SC, executive director of the Religious Formation Conference; and Erin McDonald, CSJ and Kathryn Press, ASCJ, core team members of Giving Voice, participants met in small group and then shared their insights in the large group. A video of the prayer, panel and large group feedback follows is available below, as well as a process for unpacking the key points of the session.
