March 8th-14th is National Catholic Sisters Week. During this week we honor all the Sisters who have enriched our lives through the years. Whether they served in education, healthcare, social justice, helping the poor and sick, or the empowerment of women, Catholic Sisters have contributed so much to society and dedicated their lives to helping others.
