The fourth annual celebration of National Catholic Sisters Week -- March 8-14, 2017 -- shattered a record, generating more than 300 events across the country, which more than doubled the number of NCSW events hosted in March 2016.
Search social media using the hashtag #NCSW2017 and you'll uncover the breadth and depth of activities that celebrated women religious. Some focused on the profound legacy of Catholic sisters in their community. Others connected today's sisters with young people. Still other events involved taking steps to build a better future.
NCSW warranted this warm thank-you from Site Director Molly Hazelton, who offered every support she could to event planners and attendees nationwide.
The next step, according to Hazelton, is to continue to tell the stories of women religious, to act on the insights gleaned and friendships forged during NCSW. "This is just the beginning!" she said.
Stay tuned to SisterStory for the next iteration.
