Sisters of Notre Dame: Catholic Sisters Week 2022
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, March 8-14, we shine the spotlight on women religious and encourage a wide range of campaigns and events that invite all who follow Jesus to
- expand and support their gospel witness
- grow the service networks they have seeded
- share their spirituality, charisms, and community
- encourage young women to consider a vocation to religious life
- support their pastoral, teaching and prophetic works
- and focus on the new world they call into being.
The Sisters of Notre Dame of the United States are called to serve in many different ways. Throughout Catholic Sisters Week, each region will be featured and the sisters’ service projects will be highlighted.
