National Catholic Sisters Week

National Catholic Sisters Week will be celebrated from March 

8 - 14 as part of National Women’s History Month. It is 

intended to shine a national spotlight on the good works and 

good will of Catholic sisters. It recognizes past and present 

sisters, from the movers and shakers pressing the front lines of 

social change to the faithful praying in cloistered chapels. This 

is a great time for all of us to pray in thanksgiving for all women 

who answer the call to religious life. Let us remember with 

grateful hearts all of the women who were such models of faith 

for us and who always saw the best in us! I am very grateful for 

Catherine Marie Jordan, Marie Jerome Murray, Maura 

Mackessey and Marie Therese Bugge who taught me so much 

and who shaped me into the woman I am today!

Pat Schifini, OSU
