Global Sisters Report posts article by Postulant Jacqueline Small

In a recent post in Global Sisters Report (GSR), an independent and non-profit online source of news and information about Catholic sisters, Postulant Jacqueline Small, age 27, shares her reflections on intergenerational community living in an article titled: Love, loss, communal life in an intergenerational community. She says: “This is the heart of intergenerational life, I think: that I do feel a real sense of kinship with the women who came long before me, whose names and tiny fragments of their stories are all that are known to me.”

GSR was launched in 2014 by the National Catholic Reporter (NCR). This groundbreaking reporting project, funded by a three year grant from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, is dedicated to telling the stories of women religious around the world. It has built a global network of journalists to report the stories of sisters, their ministries and the people they serve. It included columns by women religious and gives voice to sisters as well as recognition for the important work they do. In addition, sisters write commentary from their perspective.
