Together, we go further

Union Process

CJ and IBVM, two different congregations, are dreaming of becoming One. As Mary Ward women, we are determined to accomplish and celebrate this Union process that will lead us to the union of hearts and minds.

We are living our process of Union deeply, taking time to know each other, sharing time and conversations, and praying together to find our common ground.

From the consultation process held in 2019-2020 in both branches, it was clear that one of the most important next steps in the process was to find a way for members to get to know each other and the history and realities of the other branch better, especially in parts of the world where we do not currently co-exist.
