National Catholic Sisters Week begins tomorrow, March 8, at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minn. This inaugural week recognizes sisters nationwide who have served faithfully as part of American history, and events are planned for participants to learn more about sisters and hear their stories of service and vocation.
Tomorrow’s events, including an afternoon panel discussion moderated by broadcast journalist Soledad O’Brien, will be live streamed from St. Kate’s campus in the Twin Cities. The panel titled, “Sister Stories: How Did I Know,” will engage young women and sisters in conversation about experiences of religious life.
