Congratulations to Sr. Mary Barron, OLA as President of UISG

Born in Ireland, Sr. Mary Barron of the Order “Our Lady of the Apostles” has recently become head of the  International Union of Superiors of Religious Orders (UISG) with its headquarters in Rome.  This makes her the largest organised women’s power in the Church; her association represents more than half a million women religious worldwide. She has gained international experience in the SEDOS network, in which about 80 male and female religious congregations that are active internationally exchange information. With Sr. Mary, as the participant of the Synod, for the first time, organised women religious have a voice at a Synod of Bishops that is not merely symbolic.
SEDOS deem it privileged to congratulate Sr. Mary Barron, OLA for being elected as the President of the UISG. It is really a proud moment for all of us in SEDOS.

Hearty Congratulations and best wishes…
