The Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), the association of the leaders of congregations of Catholic women religious in the United States, has said that it is “deeply disturbed by many of President Trump’s recent executive orders. His misplaced priorities and denigration of the values that form the bedrock of this nation, threaten us all.”
The Society leadership team shares the LCWR’s concerns, endorses its statement (read in full here), and supports the organization’s call to “stand in solidarity with families, regardless of immigration status, who labor daily to provide safety and security for their children.”

Judith Lancaster, SHCJ, prepared a prayer that everyone can pray together for a just, peaceful and compassionate resolution to the global refugee crisis.
