This month on In Good Faith, we talk with Sister Jan Cebula, OSF, and Tracy Abeln of the Global Sisters Report. The Global Sisters Report is a network of sisters and journalists that tells the stories of women religious throughout the world. The sisters' stories focus on a variety of topics including ministry, equality, and spirituality.
Sister Jan is a member of the Sisters of St. Francis in Clinton, Iowa. She is serving as the U.S. liaison to women religious and organizations -- making connections, uncovering stories, and identifying women religious to write for the Global Sisters Report (GSR). Prior to her work with GSR, Sister Jan served as her congregation's president (2004-2012), and was a legal aid attorney in Kansas City, Missouri, for 23 years.
Tracy Abeln is a native of St. Louis, Missouri, and has lived in Kansas City since 1998. She is currently serving as assistant managing editor for the Global Sisters Report. Tracy joined the National Catholic Reporter in March 2012 as executive assistant for the editorial team. Before joining NCR she worked as an editor for a weekly local newspaper and a visual arts magazine, and as an ESL teacher.
The Global Sisters Report is a project of the National Catholic Reporter and is made possible by a grant from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation. For more information on the Global Sisters Report, visit globalsistersreport.org.
