President-elect of LCWR profiled in Milwaukee newspaper


Franciscan Sr. Florence Deacon, of St. Francis, Wis., talks with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel about entering the St. Francis of Assisi convent at the age of 16, changes that came with Vatican II and the work sisters have been doing for the past few decades.

But Deacon, who will lead the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), would not comment on the Vatican document criticizing nuns until the organization has "drafted a formal response."
