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

As in the past ten years, Catholic Sisters Week is scheduled for March 8th through March 14th. This is the time when we pause to remember the work of women religious who have served in this diocese since 1852. This site includes a list of suggestions for remembering these sisters who have ministered to your parishioners during its history. The theme for this year’s celebration is “Peace Must Begin with Me.” All are invited to use the prayer and prayer service on this theme at meetings in parishes during this week.

If you have further questions or other ideas that we might be able to help you to develop, please feel free to contact us.
