Celebrating Traditions

Changing the World


Catholic Sisters Week 2021 saw the mission and ministry of women religious recognized through events of all stripes: Zoom conversations and conferences, food drives, Instagram takeovers, livestream event on Facebook, virtual tours, book discussions, interviews, photo galleries and many more. We look forward to continuing to celebrate sisters and their work throughout the next 12 months, culminating in Catholic Sisters Week 2022 from March 8 though March 14.

Fifty-two weeks a year women religious stand with the poor and immigrants, teach children, fight injustice, heal the sick, share spirituality, empower women, defend the planet, promote peace, create community, offer hope…

But for one week, March 8-14, we shine the spotlight on women religious and encourage a wide range of campaigns and events that invite all who follow Jesus to

  • expand and support their gospel witness
  • grow the service networks they have seeded
  • share their spirituality, charisms, and community
  • encourage young women to consider a vocation to religious life
  • support their pastoral, teaching and prophetic works
  • and focus on the new world they call into being.
