Christian Brothers Services - CMSM & LCWR

Romeoville, Illinois, August 15, 2022—Christian Brothers Services (CBS) and BMT, a division of Christian Brothers Services, have the extreme honor to provide sponsorship for recent events dedicated to the work of our religious leaders.

As the Presidential sponsor and exhibitor at the 2022 Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) recently held in St. Louis, Missouri, CBS was privileged to be a part of the assembly which met, in person, for the first time since 2019. LCWR is an association of the leaders of congregations of Catholic women religious in the United States. The conference represents nearly 80% of the approximately 49,000 women religious in the United States. The conference assists its members to collaboratively carry out their service of leadership to further the mission of the Gospel in today’s world.

In addition, more than 100 Major Superiors attended the 2022 Conference of Major Superiors of Men (CMSM) National Assembly in Buffalo, New York where CBS also served as a sponsor and exhibitor.

CMSM, through the leadership of the religious institutes, monastic communities, and societies of apostolic life, addresses the life and concerns of the members of the institutes and societies in the United States, and the evangelizing mission of the institutes, monasteries and societies in the context of church and culture in this country.

“These partnerships allow us to build upon the relationships with influential leaders of religious institutes and in so doing, continue to identify the needs important to our members,” said President and CEO Patrick Lynch, CFA. “We appreciate the opportunity to learn from these great leaders and work together in association.”

CBS strives to guide member organizations in finding practical solutions to business needs and offers a variety of programs in risk retention, retirement planning, health, property/casualty, financial, technology and Catholic school management.
