FAIRFIELD UNIVERSITY’S CENTER FOR CATHOLIC STUDIES PRESENTS:
Living Theology Workshop
“How Did the Nuns End Up on the Bus?”
A viewing of the film “Band of Sisters” followed by a discussion with Sr. Jo-Ann Iannotti, OP and Sr. Rosemarie Greco, DW
Band of Sisters tells the story of Catholic nuns and their work for social justice after Vatican II of the 1960s. For Catholics who wonder what became of the nuns they knew in habits and convents many years ago, for activists who may feel profoundly discouraged given the problems of today’s world, for women seeking equality in their church, and for people of all faiths yearning for an inclusive and contemplative spirituality, Band of Sisters challenges us to ask what really matters in life. And as we seek what matters, how do we go about changing our lives and the world around us?
The movie is about 90 minutes long.
Sr. Jo-Ann Iannotti is the Art & Spirituality Coordinator
and Sr. Rosemarie is the Administrator at Wisdom House Retreat and Conference Center in Litchfield, CT.
