An awesome week celebrating the lives and legacy of Catholic Sisters in the United States will kick off at St. Katherine’s University in St. Paul, Minnesota on March 8. The project is made possible by a grant from the Conrad Hilton Foundation which also gave a grant to the National Catholic Reporter for a global reporting project about women religious. The Foundation’s vision is to create a movement that ignites national awareness around the lives and profound contributions of sisters, inspiring girls and women to be open to a call to religious life.
Adrian Dominican Sister Mary Soher who is helping lead the project explains that there are so many ways of being a sister, different community charisms, ministries and locations. This week of focus on sisters is a way to encourage people to highlight sisters they know and show what they have done. Maybe women who have a call to religious life will discover there is a community out there for them.
The IHM Sisters join in this week’s celebration with joy and gratitude for our call to share the good news of the Gospel as religious sisters.
