Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina hosts annual conference for women religious

The Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina hosted the 13th annual Collaboration for Ministry Initiative (CMI) Statewide Conference for Women Religious November 3-5 in Myrtle Beach. The Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland co-sponsored the conference, which provided a weekend filled with fellowship, learning and rejuvenation for nearly 70 sisters from across South Carolina.

This year’s conference theme was “Respect: Nothing in this World is Indifferent to us,” based on the Pope’s encyclical, Laudato si,’ “On Care For Our Common Home.” Participants discussed ways they can better care for the earth from an ecological standpoint, as well as spiritually.

In addition to group discussion and presentations from Sr. Ray Maria McNamara, RSM, Ph.D., from Sisters of Mercy of the Americas and Mark Small, J.D., Ph.D., from Clemson University, the sisters also partook in a few wind-down activities such as movie night and game night. 

It is the foundation’s goal each year to honor the sisters who are close to the foundation’s heart and serve the people of South Carolina by giving them the opportunity to gather at the beach with fellow sisters and recharge through fellowship, relaxation and fun.
