Mary Jo Nelson, OLVM share the context of living the mission of religious life while in the process of becoming a new community that goes beyond known structures, ministries, governance, etc. For the last five years, Mary Jo has, with her team, been facilitating a community-wide process that has prepared her community to live religious life in the next phase of their journey. As they have attended to creating new and simplified structures and processes with new partners, they have also attended to the meaning of their life as women religious in new circumstances and realities, which includes a direction for this new time in their life.
