Kansas Governor proclaims March 8-14 Catholic Sisters Week

On February 20, ten Sisters from five communities traveled to Topeka for a special meeting. Governor Laura Kelly signed a proclamation that March 8-14, 2024, be declared Catholic Sisters Week in the state of Kansas. The communities represented were Adorers of the Blood of Christ in Wichita, the Benedictines in Atchison, the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia. The fifth community represented was the School Sisters of Saint Francis; three Sisters who were visiting from Haiti.

For several years, the national professional organization Communicators for Women Religious has promoted Catholic Sisters Week, a time set aside to spotlight the ministries, achievements, and contributions of Catholic Sisters in the United States.

This year, the communication professionals from the four Kansas communities decided to collaborate in their Catholic Sisters Week promotions with the guidance of the Catholic Sisters of Kansas board.

In addition to highlighting Governor Kelly’s proclamation, the four communities plan to cross-promote each other’s communities through social media posts and websites.
