In honor of National Catholic Sisters Week (March 8-14) we are celebrating the positive impact that Catholic Sisters (and especially Sisters of Notre Dame!) have had on our lives. Has a sister influenced your faith or inspired you in some way? Share your story with us in the comments!

A Prayer for National Catholic Sisters Week

Loving and Gracious God, You express your love by putting special people in our lives – and today we thank you for a very special group, the Catholic sisters you have given to the church. They fulfill a unique role, devoting their lives to building the Kingdom of God here on Earth. We ask you to bless all women religious. Guide them, strengthen them, sustain them. Shower them with your grace. And we ask that you may open our eyes to the beauty of their work, so that we too may draw close to you in prayer and reach out, in turn, to help neighbors in need. Give us the courage to answer the unique call you have for each of our lives. It is the path to great joy. We ask this in the name of Jesus the Christ and the Holy Spirit, both now and forever. Amen.
