Local nun looks to new leader of Catholic Diocese for dialogue on divisive issues

WBFO News photo by Eileen Buckley

The Leadership Conference of Women Religious is calling for dialog on the Catholic doctrine with the Vatican.

This past spring, the Vatican scolded the organization -- which represents American nuns --saying the group was not promoting the churches teachings. 

Now the Vatican wants a team of bishops to control the group.  

WBFO & AM-970's Eileen Buckley talked to a local nun and Buffalo's new bishop about this divide.
