Catholic Sisters of Western Pennsylvania


National Catholic Sisters Week - March 8-14, 2016

“Be Inspired. Meet a Sister.” The Catholic Sisters of Western Pennsylvania are observing  National Catholic Sisters Week (NCSW) in a variety of ways that invite others to join us in our mission, as well as honor the dedicated services of all Sisters and bring attention to the needs of those served by Sisters and their ministries.  These activities include a Collaborative Food Drive and participation in Pittsburgh's St. Patrick's Day Parade. Learn more about these activities HERE!

Catholic Sisters are not as readily identified as in the past when they wore habits, but our mission has not changed.  Today's Sisters:

  • Have a wide range of education training and experiences. Many with graduate and undergraduate degrees, as well as those with years of service in both the public and private sectors. 

  • Serve ALL our neighbors in need through ministries in parishes, hospitals, clinics, transitional housing sites, retreat centers, hospices and women's centers, to name only a few. 

  • Advocate for our sisters and brothers who are voiceless, lending our support to peace making, reconciliation and non-violence. We are especially moved by the plight of the poor and others relegated to the margins of society.
