C21 Series on Women and the Church to Continue

A continuing series of discussions on the role of women in the Catholic Church sponsored by the Church in the 21st Century Center of Boston College will resume Nov. 13 with "How Women Live Out Being Catholic: Sharing Our Stories."

The panel for the event, which begins at 5:45 p.m. (registration at 5:30 p.m.), is Vice Provost Pat DeLeeuw; Patricia Casey '75, of Maguire Associates; Women's Resource Center Director Sheila McMahon; and BC senior Kara Cherniga.

The series debuted in 2004 with "Envisioning the Church Women Want" and also included "Why Women Choose to Stay" and last year's "Prophetic Witness: Catholic Women's Strategies for Reform."

Two more discussions are planned for the 2007 spring semester: "Called to Be Catholic: Religious Practices that Nourish Women's Spirituality" and "Speaking as a Woman: Reflections on Contemporary Catholicism."
