Visitors Draft Letter to LCWR

The Visitors are in the process of finalizing a draft letter to the leadership of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) and Archbishop Sartain who heads the investigation regarding the Vatican assessment and report on the LCWR. The thrust of the letter will be fraternal and pastoral; leaders speaking to leaders and being brothers to our sisters and brothers in Christ. The letter will request that the Sisters be treated with the dignity they deserve. It will acknowledge the burden both Archbishop Sartain and Sister Patricia Farrell are confronting. Whatever response is forthcoming from the investigation, the Visitors will stress that the response be transparent, characterized by listening and dialogue, just and proportionate to the issue.
