Catholic Sisters Week began in 2013 as a part of National Women’s History Month. It is now an official component of Women’s History Month. It was authorized by Molly Murphy MacGregor, co-founder of National Women’s History Project, who was educated and deeply influenced by Catholic Sisters. In 1981, Women’s History Month launched as a single week celebration. By 1987, U.S. Congress formally expanded it to the full month of March.
The Annual Celebration of Catholic SistersWeek is celebrating its 10th Anniversary and the staff at Villa de Matel were excited to join the annual celebration by presenting the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, Houston, with a banner saying, “We Are Thankful For Our Sisters – You Have Made An Incredible Change In Our World.” Staff members then presentedeach of the Sisters with a sweet treat – look at the smiles!
