Mary Beth Fraser Connolly examines the interaction of members of the Chicago Province of the Sisters of Mercy during the 1950s and 1960s with their parish communities. As laypeople endeavored to assume greater control over parochial education, many sisters began to experiment with forms of vocation and mission that broke down the boundaries between professed religious and the laity. Those sisters who remained in the educational apostolate after 1970 increasingly devoted their efforts to such objects as civil rights and racial reconciliation.
