National Catholic Sisters Week | SisterStory Listening Party
Years ago the Hilton Foundation gave St. Catherine University some money to support outreach around the Sisters, broadly construed. Why? Because in their research on ROI, they found that money given to Sisters to do good in the world yielded the largest returns. Sisters have a history of maximizing benefits
In our practice at St. Kate’s we, with a faculty of varying faiths and identities, channel the Sisters practices of hospitality, generosity, the Catholic Intellectual Tradition and treating our dear neighbors as ourselves to serve the greater good in our work with students and the community. Unity around this shared purpose is what makes working and learning here uniquely wonderful.
Anyway, if you are a lover of podcasts, good stories, history, or community you might consider the series shared here. A suitable addition to National Women’s History Month as well as National Catholic Sisters Week in March.
