'Women & Spirit' set to open at the Smithsonian

 |  NCR Today

“Women & Spirit: Catholic Sisters in America” opens Jan. 15 in the International Gallery of the S. Dillon Ripley Center. It runs from Jan. 15, 2010 through April 25, 2010.

The exhibition, as many of us know, explores the contributions Catholic sisters made — and continue to make — in shaping the nation’s social and cultural landscape.

“Women & Spirit: Catholic Sisters in America” is a project of The Leadership Conference of Women Religious, in association with the Cincinnati Museum Center.

I had a dream that the entire Roman Catholic curia had flown in to Washington to spend several days viewing the exhibit -- as an act of penance for their sins.

Mary Daly was conducting the tour.
