West coast women religious support continues to grow

 |  NCR Today

Like the priests and bishops of Los Angeles, the city’s Catholic university and Catholic women’s college are also preparing to honor their respective sponsoring communities of women religious:

  • Loyola Marymount University, with both the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Oranges as founding/sponsoring religious communities (along with the Jesuits) is using its annual Heritage Week to pay homage to the sisters with a historical display of photos of the women religious and former women religious who have served and continue to serve the university in various faculty, staff, and administrative roles. The display will honor not only the RSHM and CSJ that have worked on campus but all women religious including several Sisters of St. Louis, Sisters of Charity of Rolling Hills, Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, Dominican Sisters, Franciscan Sisters, and several IHMs who were offered faculty positions at LMU when Immaculate Heart College closed; it is also inclusive of the many women who have left their respective religious communities but remained active in the life of the university. Attached are advertisements for the display.
  • Mount St. Mary’s College, founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondolet, will screen the film That All May Be One which chronicles of the story of the Carondelets—the first CSJ or SSJ in the United States. Information on the event is available on LMU’s website, which is co-sponsoring the event.

Right on!
