Honoring the Contributions of Catholic Sisters

"Wherever good things are happening, there are likely to be Sisters involved.”

That apt observation comes from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, which in 2013, began a campaign to honor Catholic Sisters across the United States.

Now known as Catholic Sisters Week, annually March 8-14, it honors the women who give their lives in service to others. March is also Women’s History Month.

The event not only celebrates the invaluable contributions of women religious to society now and in the past, but seeks to inspire young women to embrace vowed life in the future.

The Ursuline Sisters have joined thousands of nuns around the country each year, celebrating the week in some special way.

This year, we’re featuring stories and photos of our Sisters, our Associates and our ministries online.

“We want to show we’re vibrant, happy people, living the Gospel,” says Sister Norma Raupple. “Through our ministries, we show love to the entire human family, as Jesus did.”
