Well, find me a yellow flower:
The first National Catholic Sisters Week will take place March 8–14, 2014 as part of Women’s History Month. The purpose is to raise awareness of the mission and ministries of Catholic sisters. Women religious have made, and continue to make, vital contributions in education, health care, criminal justice, social justice, theology, the arts, and politics. The inaugural celebration will be held at St. Catherine’s University in St. Paul, MN, an institution belonging to the Sisters of St. Joseph Carondelet.(The only thing they left out of that list was "media evangelization.")
So to mark National Catholic Sisters Week, share "your" nun story here on NunBlog!
First nun you ever met? First nun you ever really got to know as a real person? Something a nun did that remained with you ever since? Tell us--and then tell someone at the water cooler*! Best stories will be condensed to 140 characters and shared via Twitter.
