In her message to participants in the RECongress program book, Director, Sister Edith Prendergast, RSC writes, "...'Voice Infusing Life' beckons us to attend to the voice of God which echoes though the ages...The well prepared liturgical celebrations and entertainment provided are sure to lift hearts and worship in a chorus of spirits."
