Sister Donna’s remarks were made at the organization’s annual assembly on Aug. 11 in Dallas, Texas, where she received LCWR’s Outstanding Leadership Award and Sisters Sue, Maureen Geary and Rebecca Ann Gemma were blessed after taking office as president-elect, president and past president, respectively. In the Global Sisters Report article announcing Sister Donna’s achievement, “LCWR honors Sr. Donna Markham, a ‘transformational leader’ who took on ‘unsolvable problems,’” she urged Sister Sue and her new LCWR team “to continue to carry out their mission, whatever the consequences. ‘We will continue to live together in love, in boldness and sustained assurance that we are not alone.’”
