Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland highlights Collaboration for Ministry Initiative happenings in new newsletter

The Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland recently published a new issue of its Collaboration for Ministry Initiative (CMI) newsletter, which was redesigned and renamed Called by Faith. The newsletter shares updates about the work of CMI, which promotes collaboration of sisters of different orders and their joint ministries.

The new issue provides reflections from two members of the Intergenerational Convention planning committee, who helped organize a gathering last year of 122 religious and lay people designed to build relationships. Other topics in the newsletter include a recap of CMI’s 10th anniversary celebration last December in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and how a prison ministry with more than 300 trained volunteers is expanding to serve juveniles detained in the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Detention Center.

The newsletter also highlights research results from a study, “Support for Sister-Affiliated Ministries during Challenging Times: Understanding a Foundation Initiative in Two Regions,” published in The Foundation Review.

“Although there is a new look and name, the purpose of this newsletter remains the same—to share the good work and lift the voices of women religious and lay partners in Northeast Ohio,” said Erin McIntyre, program officer, Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland.

The Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland is a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System.
