"For I know well the plans I have in mind for you, says the Lord, plans to give you a future full of hope."     (Jeremiah 29:11)

The XXI UISG Plenary is soon approaching and will be held in Rome.

Approximately 850 leaders of the world's congregations of Catholic women religious are preparing to come to Rome May 6-10 for their triennial weeklong meeting of the International Union of Superiors General (UISG). An umbrella organization that represents more than 450,000 sisters and nuns around the world and 80 different countries, speaking 13 languages. We are also happy to welcome more than 40 speakers and guests.

The theme is “Sowers of Prophetic Hope.”  This theme urges us to consider how women religious can be signs of hope “in a world of division and war” and “for the many women and children who suffer”.
