National Catholic Sisters Week

Wednesday, March 8, is the first day of National Catholic Sisters Week (NCSW). On Tuesday, March 14, we have scheduled an event on our campus. NCSW is all about recognizing Catholic sisters who have had a positive impact on your life. This is the fourth year that NCSW is being celebrated. The first two years, events were held on the campus of Saint Catherine University in Saint Paul. This year, religious communities were invited to write a grant proposal explaining how they would like to celebrate NCSW. In writing a proposal, I decided that it was an opportunity for us to inform as many people as possible about NCSW. So I specified that we would hand out 2000 Fun Size packets of M&Ms on Tuesday, March 14. Each packet will have a label on it that reads CELEBRATE WITH US National Catholic Sisters Week. Sisters will walk around campus, meet students getting off the bus, and visit academic buildings. Greeting students, staff and faculty with a sweet treat is our goal for the day. The grant gifted us with money for this event. This allowed us to purchase the M&Ms, print the labels, and advertise through printed flyers that will be posted throughout campus. Many hands have heled put the labels on the M&Ms and many hands will distribute them on March 14. So celebrate NCSW with us, wherever you are.
