We are very pleased to announce that the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) has chosen Sr. Patricia Chappell, SNDdeN to receive the 2020 Outstanding Leadership Award.

Patricia has spent nearly 30 years committed to anti-racism training and dismantling white privilege, where she modeled inclusivity and witnessed to the truth of the dignity of every human person. During her nine-year tenure as executive director of Pax Christi USA she promoted a spirituality of non-violence and asked each bishop in the United States to affirm active nonviolence as a core Christian principle. She has worked with countless religious congregations and lay groups on diversity-racism issues. Patricia was one of the founding members of the Black Sisters Conference and served as its president from 1996-2001.

A member of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, Patricia serves on the East-West Unit provincial leadership team. She will be honored at the LCWR August assembly in Dallas.
