Celebrating Catholic Sisters Week by spotlighting the ministries of women religious in the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City:

“… Catholic Sisters Week (March 8-14)  has been celebrated in the U.S. since 2014 to recognize women religious and their ministries, as well as to educate and encourage young women to consider religious life as their vocation.


While some women religious congregations are committed solely to contemplative prayer (e.g., Discalced Carmelite Sisters in Piedmont), other religious communities combine both contemplative prayer life and active apostolate work.


Although our monastic Benedictine community has a contemplative orientation, our sisters have been very active with teaching at Monte Cassino School since 1926 and serving at the Catholic Charities for the past 50 years,” said Sister Marie Therese Long, O.S.B., the prioress of the Saint Joseph Monastery in Tulsa.”
