DUBUQUE  — “The enlivening spirit is among us,” declared Sister Mary Ann Zollman, BVM, keynote presenter at the 10th Biennial Conference of Associates & Religious of the Midwest Area (CARMA) on April 20. Throughout the day, 250-plus associates and vowed members of 17 congregations of religious women and men reflected on the expressions of the Spirit among them and within their religious congregations.
Inspired by word and silence, thoughtful conversation and attentive listening, poetry and song, image and symbol, story and ritual, those present heard and discussed Sr. Zollman’s keynote presentation, “Caught by Common Charism, Creating Un­common Community.”
