Held in conjunction with National Women’s History Month, National Catholic Sisters Week (NCSW) will be held the second and third week of March. It is an annual celebration created to honor women religious. It is a series of events that instruct, enlighten, and bring greater focus to the lives of these incredible women. It’s our chance to recognize all they have done for us. The week is also designed with hope that as more young women learn about women religious, more will choose to follow their example.
The Diocese of Palm Beach encourages the faithful to celebrate and be inspired by the work of Catholic sisters during NCSW. Individuals, schools, parishes, colleges and universities and religious communities are encouraged to get involved in this national celebration of sisters. Some suggestions include taking a sister to lunch, hosting an event or coordinating a service day and producing a Sister “shout out” to use on social media. Learn what a “shout out” is and find other ideas to participate at www.nationalcatholicsistersweek.org
