National Catholic Sisters Week (NCSW) invites everyone to celebrate women religious from March 8-14.
NCSW is an annual celebration that began in 2014 to honor women religious with a series of events that instruct, enlighten, and bring greater focus on the lives of these incredible women. It’s a chance to recognize all that they do, with the hope that as more young women learn about women religious, more will choose to follow their example
In celebration of NCSW, on Saturday, March 7th, the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (MSC – Cabrini) will be joining the Delaware Valley Member Area of the National Religious Vocation Conference (NRVC) in a day of service in Phoenixville, PA. They will be pairing with The Joy of Sox, a 501c3 non-profit organization, that provides new socks for those experiencing homelessness. Sisters from eight religious congregations will be sorting and packaging socks for later distribution to shelters in the greater Philadelphia, PA and Trenton, NJ region, and shipment to shelters throughout the United States.
Visit the NCSW website, nationalcatholicsistersweek.org, to learn about the organization, find an event near you and join in honoring women religious, or plan an event of your own and spread the word.
Please keep the Missionary Sisters in your thoughts and prayers during this special week. Perhaps, send a note or an email expressing your thanks for their service to the Church and
all those on the margins of society.
