St. Catherine University, St. Paul, to oversee launch of National Catholic Sisters Week
Sister Mary Soher, OP, and Molly Hazelton are the newly appointed co-executive directors of the Hilton Foundation Initiative on Catholic Sisters at St. Catherine University, St. Paul, MN. St. Catherine’s was chosen late summer to receive a three-year grant from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation to oversee the launch of National Catholic Sisters Week, March 8-14, 2014, as part of National Women's History Month. National Catholic Sisters Week will begin with an inaugural event at St. Catherine University on March 7-9, 2014. This invitation-only weekend will bring together college-age women and women religious from a variety of congregations and institutions to talk about religious life and the manifold contributions of women religious; about effective uses of social media to increase conversation among young women about religious life; as well as to establish a strong network of college age women, women religious and others who see value in these kind of sustained conversations. An important feature of this weekend will be discussions about grant-funded opportunities for college-age women to engage in a professionally developed, oral-history project across the United States.
As part of National Catholic Sisters Week, S. Sarah Heger and S. Amy Hereford are featured in the St. Louis Review for February 28.
