That’s how the LCWR morning meeting began at the Sisters of Bon Secours Retreat and Conference Center. Some members of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious Region 4 gathered here this week for three days of meetings. One of the leaders said, “How good it is, O God, to sing of your love in the morning and to rejoice in your faithfulness.” It was a wonderful way for different congregations to connect, share their experiences and gifts, and offer praise to God.
