women religious are not as readily identified as in
the past when they wore habits and had a greater presence
in many Catholic schools.
Today, Sisters choosing the vowed religious life come with a wide range of education training and experiences.
We've earned graduate and undergraduate degrees and
mapped out careers. Some have years of service in both the public and private sectors.
Today, the ministries of our Sisters are shaped by the
needs of our neighbors. We minister in parishes, hospitals,
clinics, transitional housing sites, retreat centers,
hospices and women's centers, to name only a few.
Today, we 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 women and children relegated to the
margins of society.
