Two Marthas @ The Catholic Religious Conference

Sisters Gemma Dunn and Joan Campbell recently attended the CRC (Catholic Religious Conference) in Montreal where over 200 men and women religious (Sisters, Brothers, and Priests) attended in person for the first time since 2018!

The talks around themes submitted by members lead to lively discussions and sharing of ideas to move forward.

What a blessed event!
