Think locally, act locally: We are all neighbors

The Life: This month, wrapping up the 2018-2019 panelists' participation, GSR asked them: Are there meaningful interactions with others for you, personally, or for your community in your neighborhood? If yours is a changing neighborhood, how are you responding to the changes?

The Life: Legal structures like civil law can strengthen sisters' ministry

Global Sisters Report: The Life panelists weigh in: Is canon law oppressive of women religious, or is it more of a legal protection? Do you think religious congregations could use civil law more to enhance their ministry?

The Life: In prayer, sisters find the unconditional love of God

Global Sisters Report: The Life panelists shared a variety of approaches that help bring them into union with God: eucharistic adoration, poetry, Scripture, yoga, dancing, drawing, and centering prayer.
