The first National Catholic Sisters Week is scheduled from March 8-14, 2014 as part of Women’s History Month. The purpose of this observance is to bring greater awareness to Catholic sisters and to make their presence more widely known and visible on a national level.
In addition to highlighting the significant role that Catholic sisters have had historically, National Catholic Sisters Week will focus on a contemporary view of these women — their lives, their mission and their works. The goal is to shed light on the tremendous impact Catholic sisters continue to make today. National Catholic Sisters Week is possible because of a generous, three-year grant provided by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation to St. Catherine’s University, St. Paul, Minn., where the initiative will be launched.
The Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart invite you to share your stories of our Sisters. We are featuring our Sisters Memories of Ministry on our website for the next few months. Please check in often! Sisters Memories of Ministry
