The Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities were part of the kick-off event for the inaugural National Catholic Sisters Week March 8 through 14 at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minn. The university received a three-year Hilton Foundation grant to help bring greater visibility to the contributions of women religious, as part of Women’s History Month (March). Sister Caryn Crook, Franciscan ecology coordinator at Alverna Heights in Fayetteville, N.Y attended the event along with Maggie Byrne, campus minister at Syracuse University. They joined women religious and young women from across the country for a weekend of storytelling, workshops and prayer.
