Sister Marcia Allen, president of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia, is among some 800 Catholic sisters and nuns gathered in Rome this week for the triennial meeting of the International Union of Superiors General.

The meeting began Friday and continues through Wednesday. The International Union of Superiors General, a group of nearly 2,000 leaders of women religious throughout the world, meets in Rome once every three years.

The theme for this year’s meeting is “It will not be so among you: The service of leadership according to the Gospel,” with the focus on what it means for women to lead in the broader Church.

    Continue to soak in and to spread, in the name of our God, and for the Mission.

    From some of the NCR reports, the meetings sound so hopeful! It is a wonderful networking of women claiming their leadership as servants.
