National Catholic Sisters Week
March 8-14, 2017
Join the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati in celebrating National Catholic Sisters Week, March 8-14, 2017. Throughout the week, the Sisters of Charity will be participating in the “Kindness: Get in the Habit” campaign, a comprehensive marketing campaign that encourages kindness among all people. It’s a response to the intolerance and violence that continues to grow in the world – environmentally, politically, ethnically, socially and economically. Join us in being in right relationship with all creation.
“The Kindness campaign is inspired by our Christian call to treat one another as we would hope to be treated,” S. Georgia Kitt says. “It’s both a response to the incivility that continues to permeate talk shows and social media, and a call to Gospel values such as caring for the poor. We want to call attention to what we should be doing for each other. We are to be feeding the hungry and welcoming the stranger. We are to be practicing compassion, as Jesus taught us. Simple acts of kindness can change the world, one person at a time. We’ve never needed it more than we do right now.”
