2/28/18: Women Religious

The Gannon Center for Women and Leadership
invites you to attend a presentation by

Dr. Susan Ross

Former Gannon Faculty Fellow

Women Religious as
Aesthetic and Moral Educators

Susan will talk about the contributions of some religious communities of women, including Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters, the Sisters of the Holy Child, and the Religious of the Sacred Heart, for the ways in which they incorporated concerns for the moral formation of their students together with a focus on beauty. These communities provided a basic “Catholic moral education” and also aimed to develop persons who saw their responsibility as building a better world that was not only good but also beautiful.
