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 www.nationalcatholicsistersweek.org .

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.
