Do you know someone inspiring?

I am turning to NCR readers, looking for help. Share this with you networks.

Deadline is May 25.

In a coming special section of NCR, we plan to offer a list of 12 U.S. Catholic lay women under age 40 who are likely to make a difference in the U.S. church in the 21st century. We are asking for suggestions from our Facebook readers as well as from the readers of our website.

In the paper we will have a photo and short write up (300 words) of each woman.

From our sister publication: GSR in the Classroom is a supplementary curriculum for use in Catholic middle and high schools and faith formation programs. Learn more.

The women do not have to be theologians though we know there will be some. We are simply asking for those you imagine will make a difference in the U.S. Catholic Church in any way. We hope to receive many diverse suggestions. I ask you to send your suggested names and a couple of sentences naming your reason for suggesting them. If you know any contact information for them we would apprentice that also. Please send your suggestions to Zoe Ryan at zryan@ncronline.org. Zoe will be writing the profiles of the women. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Full time NCR staff are not eligible.
