On January 31 Sister Angela and Sister Magdalena begun the 950 miles drive to Nashville, Tennessee, where they would attend the Financial Workshop sponsored by the Council of Major Superiors of women Religious.
The workshop featured a variety of conferences from stewardship of ecclesiastical goods to book-keeping, records, procedures and financial committees, long term planning and investments.
The conference speakers included Father Becket Soule, OP, a convert to Catholicism, and a canon lawyer; Mr. William Burleigh; Sister Mary Caritas St. Louis, OP; Mr. John Lame; and Mrs. Paige Matthews.
The workshop was a great opportunity to receive important information on the areas of finances as well as a venue to exchange ideas among the various religious communities represented. It will contribute to improve our administration and better support our mission as a religious community and a non-profit organization.
