Contribution Amid Constraint: A Sociological Look at Women’s Work in Catholic Spaces (NACC Webinar 2022 Series)
December 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
National conversations seek to build networks of support that can ensure that Catholic ministers, bereft of ecclesial support, may thrive personally and professionally for the long haul. In the face of well-researched vocational constraints, NACC chaplains demonstrate remarkable resiliency, creating often ad hoc forms of ongoing formation. In this interactive session an NACC chaplain and academic researcher will share the findings of a recent study (“Called to Contribute,” calledtocontribute.org) in which women in chaplaincy participated. We will explore common themes and consider together the implications of the study for Catholic women in chaplaincy and the needs it reveals. Participants will share their own experiences, share best practices, and collectively discern, dream and scheme about what is possible for a vibrant future of support.
