Catholic Sisters Week takes place from March 8-14 each year. The 2022 theme is Celebrating Traditions, Changing the World. Catholic Sisters Week shines a light on the spirituality, mission, and community building of women religious!

The Catholic Sisters Week website states the following:

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.
