Sister Janet Mock, a sister of St. Joseph of Baden in Beaver County who is now executive director of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious in Silver Spring, Md., is returning to Pittsburgh to speak Monday.
The title of her talk is "Sense of the Faithful: A View from the Leadership Conference of Women Religious."
The Vatican last year ordered an overhaul of the conference, an umbrella group that represents most of the 68,000 Catholic sisters in the United States. The Vatican has accused the group of doctrinal flaws and failures to promote church teaching, and last year Seattle Archbishop Peter Sartain was assigned to oversee the group for up to five years.
Sister Janet will speak at 7 p.m. Monday at the Kearns Spirituality Center, 9000 Babcock Blvd., McCandless. The talk is sponsored by the Association of Pittsburgh Priests, an independent group of about 50 priests and lay people.
The public is invited to attend. The cost is $15.
