The leaders of a certain kind of community of women religious will be gathering today in St. Louis for the annual meeting of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR – a subsidiary of the Magisterium of Nuns).
After refusing to allow Archbishop Sartain, the Holy See’s liaison for the CDF, to attend they will permit the local Archbishop, His Excellency Most Rev. Robert Carlson to address them. Then they will have talks from the editor of the Fishwrap, a lesbian activist, and a woman who promotes co-creating a planetary shift, ‘The Synergy Engine’ and conscious evolution.
They are staying at the Millennium Hotel in downtown St. Louis.
Wouldn’t it have been inspiring if the LCWR had held their assembly in a convent rather than in a 4-star downtown hotel? Think of the rich history of religious women in St Louis.
Each year people take up collections for the poor sisters, the impoverished women religious, who do nothing but help the poor and get no thanks from anyone.
Here is where the leaders of their communities are meeting in St. Louis for the LCWR meeting.
Tell me there aren’t some convents available in St. Louis.
Here, for example, is the Convent of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet:
As a special feature for the readers of this blog, I have hacked into the webcam of the exercise room where the LCWR is meeting (I don’t think they have a chapel with the Blessed Sacrament).
