GSR Today - Here we highlight the ministry and mission of Catholic women religious every day, but as part of our coverage of National Catholic Sisters Week, we're focusing on four women who are on their journey to religious life. Please read their stories and share with others who may be considering such a path.
"God calls women from all different walks of life, from different stages, and all sorts of women. . . . The only consistent influence is that God is calling." To celebrate National Catholic Sisters Week, which runs March 8-14, GSR features four women in formation.
The Dominican Sisters are "educated, passionate and making a big difference in New Orleans in the name of God . . . I wanted to follow in their footsteps." In honor of National Catholic Sisters Week, which runs March 8-14, GSR looks into the formation process.
