Sisters Mary David Walgenbach and Joanne Kollasch returned home from the recent meeting of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious in St. Louis. Both sisters praised the ministry of leadership of the women religious in their communities, the church and the world.One of the many highlights of the meeting for Sisters Mary David and Joanne was the conveying of the LCWR Leadership Award to Sister Sandra M Schneiders, IHM of Monroe, Michigan. Sister Mary David has known Sister Sandra for many years when Sister Sandra returned from Rome to teach at the Jesuit School of Theology where Sister Mary David was a student.In her acceptance address, Sister Sandra commented on the church as a unique community; “the union of those baptized into Christ, formed by his Word which is not bound (see 2 Timothy 2:8-9)—never fully grasped nor controlled by anyone—gathered around the table where we share Christ’s Body in order to become his Body for the world.”

Sister Sandra’s address was a fitting closure to the assembly.
