Doctrinal Assessment for LCWR

 
The Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) has called for renewal of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) and, on April 18, 2012, named Archbishop Peter Sartain of Seattle as its Archbishop Delegate for the initiative.  Bishop Leonard Blair and Bishop Thomas John Paprocki were also named to assist in this effort.

The CDF outlined the call in a “Doctrinal Assessment of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious," released April 18. The document outlines findings of the 2008 CDF-initiated doctrinal assessment of LCWR, conducted by Bishop Leonard Blair of Toledo, Ohio, which included his findings and an LCWR response submitted at the end of 2009, as well as a subsequent report from Bishop Blair in 2010.

A statement by Cardinal William Levada, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, is also available.
