Fifty-two weeks a year, women religious stand with the poor and immigrants, teach children, fight injustice, heal the sick, share spirituality, empower women, defend the planet, promote peace, create community, offer hope. But for one week, beginning on International Women’s Day (March 8), we shine a light on the spirituality, mission, and community building of women religious. We’re hosting events that range from composting to meditation to a talk on Thomas Merton to Nuns and Nones. Whoever you are, wherever you are, all are welcome to join us on Zoom this week.

Let’s meet sisters, grow deeper in mission, and celebrate National Catholic Sisters Week together.
