Every year we celebrate Catholic Sisters Week from March 8 to March 14. During this week, we invite all who follow Jesus to thank these women for their generous service to the church and encourage young women to consider a vocation to religious life.
The Diocese of Palm Beach has 20 congregations of religious women actively serving in parishes, nursing homes, the seminary, catholic schools, immigration legal services, medical field, monastic prayer, etc. To learn more about these orders click here:
