Women Religious in the U.S.: The Past Fifty Years
| Catherine Harmon | CWR
Ann Carey, the author of Sisters in Crisis: Revisited discusses the past, present, and future of sisters in the States
Carey recently discussed Sisters in Crisis: Revisited—From Unraveling to Reform and Renewal with CWR managing editor Catherine Harmon.
CWR: The first edition of this book was published in 1997. Since then, we’ve seen the launch of the Vatican’s apostolic visitation of US women religious communities as well as the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith’s doctrinal assessment of the Leadership Conference of Women’s Religious. Is the “crisis” faced by today’s women religious the same one they faced in 1997? Would you say their overall situation has improved or worsened since that time?
