This week, the websites described below focus specifically on spirituality.  The sites were chosen and the descriptions written by Eleanor McCloskey, CND.  Eleanor has been a member of the Congregation of Notre Dame for over sixty years and has a passion for education, particularly when it comes to incorporating the insights of scientific inquiry with religion.

Many CNWE members have benefited from Catholic educational settings and have read widely in theological, historical and spiritual literature.  Keeping abreast of the latest developments in these areas is made easier through the use of online resources.
