Catholic Sisters of Western Pennsylvania

National Catholic Sisters Week - March 8-14, 2015

National Catholic Sisters Week intends to shine a light on the good works and good will of all Catholic Sisters - past and present. Please join us as we pray that this week will bring awareness to the needs of those whom we serve, as well as serve as a resource and inspiration for those called to religious life.  
 Headquartered at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota, National Catholic Sisters Week is supported by a $3.3 million grant from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and held in conjunction with National Women's History Monty. For more information about National Catholic Sisters week, please visit .

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.
