Tribute to Sr. Rose Mary Meyer, Director of Project IRENE

Categories: More News

Project IRENE (Illinois Religious Engaging in Nonviolent Endeavors) was founded by the Leadership Conference of Women Religious of Illinois over 20 years ago. It was founded specifically to educate and lobby as a collective voice seeking justice for women and children through systemic change.

The Sisters of the Living Word, particularly Sisters Mary Ann Zrust and the late Lea Woll, were a part of the steering committee to initiate this endeavor. We continue to support Project IRENE, and the new directions and form for the future, and are so very grateful for all the good work it has accomplished in Illinois.
