Things are about to get hella holy around here.
Each day the sisters are going to partake in group meditation of sorts, or “contemplative prayer” as Sanders describes it. “It involves silence and mediation and real listening to one another, not just normal conversations.”
Well, the Catholic Church — like most religious groups, for that matter — have a bit of an age issue on their hands. The average sister in the conference is in her 70s.
Aside from seeking guidance on internal issues, the sisters will also use their time in Orange County to hear from some locals. “We're having some immigrants from the Garden Grove community come and speak, listening to people whose needs are great,” Sanders says.
