Supporting Women Religious in Leadership

Created in Africa for Africa, Professional Development for Congregational Leaders (PDCL) aims to ‘fan to flame’ the potential of leaders of women’s religious congregations to inspire and enable women-for-mission in today’s world.

By supporting and strengthening congregational leaders, PDCL contributes to the ongoing vitality of women’s religious congregations in Africa as they minister to marginalized and impoverished communities.

This is an outreach programme under the care of the Centre for Leadership and Management (CLM), Tangaza University College, Nairobi, Kenya.

Leadership Quote

“We can help heal this world and unify it in love, or we can destroy its inner unity by our resistance to evolve in love.
—Ilia Delio, The Emergent Christ

An Incarnational Practice: Loving

How can I increase my capacity for love? Day in and day out this week, we invite you to take this passage to heart and to hand. Notice all the ways and all the places where a little more love can bring some healing and unity in your life, the life of others and the life of our planet. This is a deliberate decision which, moment by moment, can transform the world.
