II]iL '--= 157 Sisters Affend Meeting Deliberations that will influence the lives and ac- tivities of thousands of American Sisters took place at Marquette University this week the auspices of the Sis- Fonmation Conference. One hundred and fifty seven Re- ligious women, all educators of Sisters, came together for ten days to re-examine their role in the Church, their position in contemporary society and the implications that these factors have in the education of isters. There were five Sisters present from t he Seattle Archdiocese. They were Sis- ter Marian Elizabeth, F.C. S.P., professor of sociology at Providence Heights; Sis- i ter Mary Catherine, O.P., from Marymount, Tacoma, graduate student at St. Mary's College, Notre Dame, Ind.; Sister Mary Dominica, O.P., instructor in English at Mount St. Dominic's, Taco- ma; Sister Mary Diana, O.P., juniorate mistress and assistant professor of theol- ogy at Rosary Heights, Ed- i monds; and Sister Mary The- aphane, F.C.S.P., professor of philosophy at Providence Heights. The Sisters who participated in the workshop represented 65 communities whose com- bined membership is over 87,- 000. They came from 43 dio- ,dhceses and 21 states, Newfound- /and, Nova Scotia and Puerto "'Rico. For the first time in its five year history, the curricu- lum-faculty workshop included two Religious Brothers. An Episcopalian Sister, a member of the Order of St. Helena also participated in the workshop. On hand to assist the w o r k s h o p participants in their study of the Church and changing society were: Monsignor Ivan Illich, direc- tor of the Center for Inter- cultural Formation in Cuer- navaca, Mexico, Reverend Francois Houtart, sociologist director of the Center for Sucio-Religious Research in Belgium, Reverend Ella Gambari, S.M.M., Vatican Council expert on the Com- mission for Religious; Dr. John Riedl of the Mar- quette University Philosophy Department, Rabbi Marc Tam enbaum, director of Inter-re- ligious Affairs of the American Jewish Committee as well as a staff of Sisters led by Sis- ter M. Annette, C.S.J., execu- tive director of the Sister Formation Conference a n d chairman of the workshop. The lectures given by the staff were designed to alert the Sisters to the rapidly changing technoligical civil- ization of our times and to indicate its sociological con- sequences. The participants studied how these consequen- ces would affect the life and work of Sisters. The studies made by the Sisters, specialists in various fields of knowledge will have an impact on thousands of Sis- ters who will teach in this country during the next two decades. The need for evolving insti- tutions that would be able to meet new situations in our cul- ture was a topic for discussion. New types of institutions with specialized functions were seen as necessary to help the Chris- tian's integration into the mod- ern world. Speakers suggested that Sis- ters in the future would be more specialized and might work in teams where individu- al members of the team would belong to different Religious congregations. Such a group would be able to utilize the combined knowledge of a num- ber of highly trained Sisters. It was envisioned that the Church of the future would have need for more collec- tive types of service in ad- dition to the person to person type of apostolate as we know it today. New concepts about unity in the Church were discussed as was the Sister's role in integrating the religious and social as- pects of modern life. The group examined the need for including in the for- mation program of Religious, training in a sociological ap- proach to the mission of the Church. The immediate back- ground for this decision is the advance in studies conducted by teams of religious sociolo- .gists. As a specialist in relig- ious sociology, Rev. Francis Houtart presented the idea that Sisters should make use of this field on a global scale. They must, he said, "be guided by a spiritual outlook, a study of facts and trends and a pros- pective view of the future."
