Today begins the inaugural National Catholic Sisters Week (NCSW), March 8-14, as part of National Women’s History Month. Join with the Sisters of Providence in recognizing those Catholic sisters who have meant so much to you. This week’s launch was made possible by a Hilton Foundation grant awarded to St. Catherine University, who wished to bring greater visibility to the contributions of women religious.
