Timeline of interactions between LCWR, doctrinal congregation

 | 

The following is a timeline of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith's investigation of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious.

2008: The Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life had ordered a separate investigation, known as an apostolic visitation, of U.S. orders of women religious. The results of that study were submitted to Rome at the end of 2011.

But I do keep wondering when Pope Francis will step up and put a stop to this narrow and divisive behavior.
