On the last night of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious assembly, just prior to a dinner banquet honoring Immaculate Heart of Mary Sister Sandra Schneiders, the 900 or more assembled Catholic sisters took time to thank the hotel staff. First they called more than 100 staff to the front of the large assembly hall to thank them personally. Then with many sisters waving their table napkins they sang the staff a blessing. It was a gesture unlike any I had witnessed before. Turns out it is part of the annual LCWR program, a genuine thank you to those who worked quietly behind the scenes to make the assembly carry on as planned.
