Published talks from the Spring Conference of the Religious of Ireland

The Spring Conference of the Religious of Ireland (CORI) entitled, "Religious Life Evolving: Faithful and Free," has published two talks given by their keynote speakers. Sister Pat Farrell, OSF, and Sister Sandra Schneiders, IHM kindly allowed their lectures to be published in full on the CORI wesite http://www.cori.ie

The talks are entitled: 'Sustaining Transformation' and 'The Ongoing Challenge of Renewal in Contemporary Religious Life'.

They are available on the CORI website as well as other interesting material. Enjoy the splendor of this Fall!
