Spring 2020 InFormation

Dear Members of the Religious Formation Conference,

We are excited to share our spring 2020 edition of InFormation. The main article features Sister Norma Pimentel's keynote address from the 2019 Congress, Where Hope and Courage Meet. As she so inspiringly implores, "Be witnesses of God's mercy. Don't miss the opportunity to be guided by the tenderness of God so that you may transform the world with your faith." We hope you'll take advantage of this opportunity to take in the wisdom she offers us as leaders and formators. 

Additionally, Katie Gordon eloquently discusses the Nuns and Nones movement in her article Nones and Nuns: Stories of Spiritual Transformation for Today. In this time of political rancor and worldly turmoil, what alternative story is already being written? As she believes, this is a kairos moment.   

This edition includes much more. We invite you to dive in.
