The month of March is National Women’s History Month and two years ago a group of women religious had the fantastic idea to take some of that month to highlight the great history and influence of consecrated women in the history of our nation and of the Church! This year, on March 8-14, 2016, please celebrate with us and your parish National Catholic Sisters Week !
At www.nationalcatholicsistersweek.org  you will find the history and purpose of the week , you will find resources to help you get involved  in the week, and links to events  that are happening across the nation to honor religious sisters.
For more inspiration and bulletin materials, go to www.sisterstories.org . There you can share your own note of gratitude for a religious woman who impacted your life, you can read the vocation stories of several women who have found their joy in following God’s will to give everything as a religious woman, or you can read more about sisters who have had great influence over the years.
