Friday Night Dialogue
Carol Galligan, Ph.D. presents: “ Collision Course: The Vatican, the Nuns of America and the Meaning of Obedience”
“Collision Course”, Carol Galligan’s extensively researched book, details the 2012 to 2014 conflict between the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), a group which includes 80 percent of nuns in America, and the Vatican. The Vatican reprimanded the nuns for straying from Catholic doctrine and put the LCRW under the control of an archbishop. Galligan’s book includes a timeline of relevant events in the conflict as well as interviews with nuns telling their stories. She’ll share with us this fascinating account of dissent that was viewed by the Vatican as defiance.
