Apostolic Visitation of Institutes of Women Religious in the United States
Catholic Sisters have contributed in manifold, generous ways to building up the Church in the United States since our nation’s earliest days. With respect for these good works and genuine concern for the women religious who perform them, the Vatican’s Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life has sought an Apostolic Visitation “in order to look into the quality of the life” of women religious in the United States.
The Apostolic Visitation is complete and all reports have been submitted to the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life. Mother Clare Millea’s mandate is complete and she has returned full-time to her responsibilities as General Superior of the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Apostolic Visitation office has closed, although this site will remain available indefinitely for informational purposes.
