Faith in Action-Multiple Ways of Being Human with Nancy Corcoran, CSJ
Avila University, Whitfield Center

Nancy Corcoran’s experience as Catholic Chaplain at Wellesley College and a sabbatical drew her to her present faith in action—ministering with the Transgender, Intersex and Gender Expansive (LGBTQIA) individuals and their families. She provides presence, support, and accompaniment with their struggles and exploration of the various ways of being human.

Join us as Sister Nancy shares how we can embody faith in action in our everyday lives.

$15 per session, breakfast included. Register online at or call 816-501-2944.
