Episode FOUR

Claiming our Voice

Catherine Slattery sgs and
Dr Frank Pitt

In conversation with Catherine Slattery sgs and Dr Frank Pitt we take a look at the foundational Good Samaritan Education document – The Statement of the Voice and Experience of Women in Leadership.

We take a look at the realities that shape this document and the accountability it calls us to. It is a unique and living document that challenges and informs the necessary social critique to be attentive to the signs of the times and claim our voice.

Episode Three


Clare Condon sgs

In this episode, we hear from the former congregational leader of the Good Sams, Clare Condon sgs. Clare’s intimate grasp of living the Good Samaritan Benedictine life and her deep understanding and history with Good Samaritan Education make her a unique person to speak to our community of discernment and breaking open a clarity on not just doing discernment, rather, the Benedictine concept of discernment as a way of living, ever listening and responding to the call of God. 

Clare’s content for this episode is from a presentation given to the Good Samaritan Education Assembly Members at the beginning of 2021.
