Catholic Sisters Week in the Diocese of Erie
March 8-14, 2022

Catholic sisters stand with the poor and immigrants throughout the year, teaching children, fighting injustice, healing the sick, sharing spirituality, empowering women, defending the planet, promoting peace, creating community, and offering hope.

But for one week each year, March 8-14, the world shines a spotlight on the spirituality, mission and community building work of Catholic Sisters.

Be part of the celebration!

Locally, Catholic Sisters highlight a particular issue during Catholic Sisters Week. This year, the focus is on our common home -- the planet earth. With the theme, Caring for Earth, Caring for You, local sisters are launching a social, broadcast, and print media campaign to heighten the awareness and importance of caring for our planet earth.
