Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) 2022 Assembly

August 09, 2022 @ 8:00 AM CT - August 12, 2022 @ 5:00 PM CT

The theme of this year’s LCWR Assembly is “Mystical Wisdom: Following Spirit’s Beckoning”


Exploring Mystical Wisdom

All around us, we see the world reawakening to the essential role that the spiritual realm plays in securing the future of the planet. Reliance on data, research, productivity, and more is, of course, paramount for the wellbeing of the world, but that reliance needs to be balanced with a valuing and full incorporation of the metaphysical realm into all that we do.

With our lifelong commitment to a spiritual life that honors mystery, our contributions as women religious are perhaps needed now more than ever. For this reason, this LCWR assembly will focus on how we can draw even more fully on our rich spiritual traditions so as to contribute to the building of this spiritual realm with even greater strength.


Assembly Highlights

As the LCWR membership grows in its diversity of cultures and ages, we will draw on the richness of some of the traditions and perspectives alive within the conference. Set in a context of a series of spiritual conversations, the assembly will provide input into the mystical wisdom available to us and help us to recognize, share, and celebrate the wisdom we each carry within ourselves. How might we deepen our access to the wisdom that surrounds us so that we may amplify it and bring it to the tables at which we sit and the many circles with which we interact? The fate of the world – with its multiple challenges – is calling for us to respond to this urgent need with these precise gifts that women religious possess.
