Through a grant from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, St. Catherine University in St. Paul, MN is launching the first National Catholic Sisters Week March 8-14, 2014. The purpose of this week is to raise awareness of the contributions of women religious by highlighting their lives and legacies and remind young women about the possibilities of religious life. National Catholic Sisters Week is part of a larger SisterStory initiative, supported by a three-year, $3.3 million grant. SisterStory focuses on building personal relationships between sisters and young women. Through the course of the program, more than 100 college women across the nation will be paired with sisters for one-on-one interviews to capture their oral histories via video, photos and blog posts.
