Has a sister impacted your life? We encourage you to reach out to her and connect with her during NCSW. Take her to lunch or out for coffee! If you don’t know a sister, get to know one! You won’t regret it!

Get Involved

Celebrate and be inspired by the work of Catholic sisters during National Catholic Sisters Week (NCSW). Get involved – host an event, coordinate a service day, meet a sister for lunch, produce a Sister shout out,” dedicate a prayer to sisters around the globe, contribute by participating in our hashtag # campaign, and engage with NCSW on social media.

Individuals, schools, parishes, colleges and universities and religious communities are encouraged to get involved in this national celebration of sisters.

Meet a sister. Celebrate their work. Be inspired.

We’ve made it easy for you to plan your own event by providing a plethora of event ideas and all the resources you’ll need to coordinate and promote activities during NCSW, including:

Post your local event on our national event calendar so it can be promoted to the larger community. Mention NCSW in your posts on social media – before, during and after your event – and we’ll engage and share your content to increase visibility for your event.


Dedicate prayers to sisters by incorporating intercessions into your service.
