Leadership for Sustainable Religious Lands: Tilling a Future of Hope

Saturday, March 2, 2013

LOUISVILLE, KY - Eight Dominican Sisters of Peace attended a workshop entitled "Leadership for Sustainable Religious Lands: Tilling a Future of Hope" at the Ursuline Campus in Louisville, KY. The workshop was organized by Dominican Sister of Peace Claire McGowan, OP, and explored the topic of the opportunities open to religious communities who own land. We spent a very energizing morning with  presentations by Mary Berry of the Berry Institute and Christy Brown of the Louisville Festival of Faiths and a theological reflection on our ownership and use of our land. The afternoon was led by Joy Anderson and a team of volunteers from the Criterion Institute who introduced us to a financial imagination to pair with our theological imagination for stewarding the land. All of us left energized and challenged by the workshop. The Sisters who attended included Srs. Claire McGowan, Rosie Van Buren, Diane Koslowski, Diane Traffas, Charlene Moser, Gemma Doll, Judy Morris, and Joan Scanlon.

Preach Peace... Build Peace... Be Peace.
