Art on the Park

Between April 25 and 28, 2012, Sisters Virginia Varley and Betty Lou Knox and Loral Dean exhibited their latest works at Regis College, today a Jesuit graduate faculty of theology at the University of Toronto.

Vatican II... The role of women religious

In this article, Sister Ellen Leonard shares her experiences and perspective of Vatican II.

Fifty years ago, on Oct. 11, 1962, Pope John XXIII formally opened the second Vatican Council. Catholics who experienced Vatican II were profoundly moved by changes to their understanding of church and its mission in the world. The Council was for them a formative experience, one that is difficult to communicate to younger Catholics. All Catholics were invited by their bishops to receive the teachings of the Council, and women religious received the teachings with enthusiasm.
