HOMAGE TO MANITOBA’S CATHOLIC RELIGIOUS WOMEN
December 22, 2014
Did you know that nearly 50 Catholic Women Religious congregations have been of service to Manitobans since 1844? If you have a testimonial to share about a wonderful sisters that you know or about religious congregation please share it with the world. In 2015-2016 the Catholic Health Association of Manitoba is leading a project entitled "Legacy of Care, Courage and Compassion" to render homage, commemorate and celebrate these humble and courageous pioneering women. Manitoba’s communities have been blessed by the work accomplished by the devoted Catholic women religious. While surmounting numerous obstacles and challenges to respond to the needs of the oppressed, poor, sick, underprivileged, and uneducated, the Sisters have contributed greatly to the foundation of Manitoba’s health, education, and social service systems, as well as played an integral role in our parishes and communities.
