For National Catholic Sisters Week, an annual celebration that takes place from March 8-14 to honor women religious, Vocation Minister Sister Belinda Monahan, OSB, organized a Movie Night held on Monday, March 11, 2019, in the Community Room. The NCSW2019 Event in a Box! provided us the "Missions of Hope" documentary that features our very own Sister Belinda Monahan, OSB, an archeologist in Chicago; Sister Xiomara Méndez-Hernández, OP, a former fashion designer in Chicago; Mother Maria Francis, a leader of the Little Sisters of the Poor in St. Paul, Minn.; and Sister Mumbi Kigutha, CPPS, a newly professed Catholic sister from Kenya who has worked for the United Nations.

The group gathered to watch the 39-minute documentary and then discussed the important themes of the diversity of each Sister as well as their unique discernment journey. It was a very fruitful conversation and a lovely way to celebrate National Catholic Sisters Week!
