A Day of World-Wide Solidarity and Prayer

The UISG (International Union of Superiors General) has designated Sunday, March 22 as a Day of Worldwide Solidarity and Prayer for those impacted by the pandemic. We are invited to join in this plea for an end to suffering and death from this pandemic. Please let us join one another in our SCN Prayer which is attached as we pray in solidarity with our Sisters across the world in this day of prayer.

Mother Catherine was a woman of her time. As she moved through her daily life, she encountered God wherever she experienced people in need and in all of creation. May she inspire us as we face the challenges of our day.

A message in a time of pandemic
