Reading on Vocation: Nuns

Listen to Reading on Vocation: Nuns

In this session, Sisters Maryanne Confoy, Janette Gray and Mary Coloe join presenter Sarah L'Estrange to talk about how their reading habits have influenced their careers and enhanced their lives.

They discuss the way books' inquiries into human relationships have affected their approach to spirituality, introduced them to feminism and given them new ways to approach teaching their students - with reading strategies gleaned from the world of fiction.
