Theresa Kane

Sisters of Mercy

Sister Theresa Kane started out as a finance manager of a Catholic hospital, and quickly moved into various leadership positions in her congregation. In 1979, as head of LCWR (representing most of the congregations of sisters in the U.S.), Theresa spoke out publicly to Pope John Paul II during his visit to Washington, D.C. about the suffering of women, who were denied equality and a voice in the Catholic church. Her words still ring in the air today. To this day, Theresa continues to speak out on controversial issues with great candor and fearlessness.
