Thanks, sisters

This week celebrates the first National Catholic Sisters Week, initiated by St. Catherine University in St. Paul.

And it’s about time. If we can designate weeks intended to raise awareness about almost everything, we can take time to focus on remarkable women whose religious communities - such as the Sisters of Providence, the Dominican Sisters, the Sisters of the Holy Names - pioneered healthcare, education and serving the poor wherever they were.  

Women religious in partnership with lay persons continue their Mission to serve the poor, the marginalized, the hungry, the homeless, those feeling hopeless and lost. May we take time to thank them, honor them and continue to do exactly what they do: follow Jesus’ mandate to “Love one another as I have loved you.”
