For one week, March 8-14, Catholic Sisters Week helps shine the spotlight on women religious and their mission and values through a wide range of campaigns and events. On Tuesday, January 25 (Planning & Resources for Catholic Sisters Week) and Thursday, February 3 (Catholic Sisters Week Care of Earth Challenge), CWR hosted “Flash Conversations” to help participants prepare for Catholic Sisters Week 2022 with collaborative thinking and resource-sharing.

These sessions served as forums for Catholic Sisters Week planning help, collaborative thinking, resource-sharing and answers to participant questions. Thanks to all who took part!

Additional planning resources, including social media toolkits, can be found on the Catholic Sisters Week website. A toolkit specifically dedicated to the Catholic Sisters Week care of Earth challenge launched by LCWR Region IV (“Caring for Earth, Caring for You”) is the newest addition to the site:
