Sisters ask for prayer, fasting to support LCWR dialog


One of the largest groups of U.S. Catholic sisters has asked its members to join in prayer and fasting in an effort to support dialog between American sisters and three bishops appointed by the Vatican to oversee their work.

The statement, which came after a November meeting of the leaders of the 16 congregations of the U.S. Federation of the Sisters of St. Joseph, asks the federation’s some 5,500 sisters and their nearly 3,000 lay associates to choose at least one day a week to dedicate to the effort.
