5.10.2012 Thursday Roundup

Interest in the LCWR Doctrinal Assessment remains high as we come to the end of the third week since its announcement.  Unless there is fresh news directly from LCWR or the bishops, however, it does not seem necessary to continue posting links here six days a week.  Therefore, Sister News will begin publishing news links here two days a week, on Monday and Thursday, until further notice.  If there is breaking news, it will be posted at other times as needed.  Some additional information and links that do not make it onto this website are posted on the Sister News Facebook page, and you can also follow Sister News on Twitter.
