The LCWR Doubles Down on Dissent

  • Description: For the third year in a row, the question of how the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) would respond to a Vatican mandate to reform the organization spiked high interest in the group’s annual assembly Aug. 12-15.And for the third year in a row, the assembly ended not with a bang, but a whimper. Some fireworks did ignite as the main speakers spent most of their energy defending positions taken by the LCWR, even openly criticizing the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), which had ordered the reform in April of 2012 after a three-year doctrinal assessment. Executive sessions that excluded non-members of LCWR also reportedly focused on the mandate. In the end, however, the LCWR National Board issued a two-paragraph statement similar to those of 2012 and 2013: LCWR would stay in the “conversation” with the CDF delegate, Archbishop J. Peter Sartain of Seattle, as long as LCWR’s “mission” and “integrity” were not compromised. We talk to Ann Carey, author of Sisters in Crisis.
