Part of the 2021 Lecture Series “Catholic Women: Agents of Peace and Trust in the Church and in the World”
As Catholics and Americans, we face many challenges as we look to the future. Within the church, we struggle with a loss of confidence by many of the faithful, including our own family members and colleagues. The Coronavirus pandemic has further strained the church and other institutions that were formerly a source of stability, such as our health care system and even the stability of our democracy. We have assembled a panel of Catholic women physicians and scientists who will share how their faith has informed their professional development and their response to these challenges, and the solutions they envision for the future.
