Sister Mary Hughes talked about relations between the Catholic Church and the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR). The Vatican in a recent report had criticized the LCWR for focusing too much on social justice issues at the expense of pushing the church’s stance against same-sex marriage and abortion. She said that LCWR was “stunned” by the report and did not seek members who speak against the Catholic Church, and said the organization wanted to stay within the church. After her speech, Sister Hughes answered written questions from audience members. close
