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.

Mary Coloe is a Sister of the Australian Presentation Society and is Associate Professor in Theology at the Australian Catholic University.
Maryanne Confoy is a Sister of Charity.
