Newly Redesigned Website

CMSWR home pageWe are a member community of the Council of Major Superiors of Women Religious (CMSWR), a pontifically recognized council of Catholic sisters in the United States.  Last fall, the website of the Council ( underwent an upgrade making it easier to use to find upcoming vocations retreats offered by member communities, to read news of the CMSWR, and to find on-line resources about consecrated life.  It also now includes a rotating “Spotlight on Founders” in the bottom left-hand corner of the home page.

Formators’ Workshop, March 2014
From March 11-14, sisters from member communities across the country gathered in St. Louis to share in a Formators’ Workshop.  Fr. Basil Cole, OP and Dr. Susanne Harvath presented talks to the 120 sisters in attendance.  The event was designed for mistresses of novices, directors of vocations, and other sisters who serve in houses of formation.  We were very grateful to have one of our sisters be able to participate in this workshop.
