Conference Connections: Venimos con Gusto - Zoom Conference Overall Purpose, July 2020
- To seek a strong understanding of our SCSH vision and directional statements creating a path to action.
- To act as religious women prayerful, socially conscious, and socially action oriented in relevant issues within our Community, Catholic Church, and the entire world. Topics Covered: Islam; vocations; dialogue on racism; discussion of Plante Moran report; various discussions on books and articles; conversations on current issues. All topics are discussed with reference to our SCSH vision and directional statements.
Method: We develop our agenda from the ideas and suggestions of our conference members and use dialogue, a discussion, and intentional conversation within a zoom format.
Action: When appropriate, we offer suggestions to Provincial leadership after well thought out and animated discussion. We have an official Conference prayer in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe. We floated a trial run proposing a logo/clothing suggestion among all the conferences. We are considering a possible blog on relevant social issues.
