Meet a sister. Be inspired. National Catholic Sisters Week invite

The Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods are gearing up to celebrate National Catholic Sisters Week March 8-14, and you are invited to join us!

National Catholic Sisters Week was first celebrated in 2014 in conjunction with women’s history month and is now celebrated every March 8-14. It is an opportunity to highlight and share with others about what life as a woman religious is all about.

We invite you to take the opportunity to learn more about women religious during this week. Meet very real and down-to-Earth women who have lived their lives dedicated to others, to service and prayer and to God. Learn about their work that helps make life a little easier and more hopeful for people all around the globe.

Thanks to a grant from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, the Sisters of Providence are offering opportunities to share themselves with others during the week and beyond.

Events planned include:

Supper with the Sisters at Mother Guerin Convent in River Grove, Illinois
Women ages 18-42 are invited for evening prayer and dinner with the sisters who live in the convent on March 8 at 5:15 p.m. Learn more and register here.
