The congregations of Leadership Conference of Women Religious Region 8, including the Benedictine Sisters of Chicago, have extended the challenge to join them in refusing to use any single-use plastic beverage bottles during Catholic Sisters Week. Now you can submit your pledge to “Refuse to Use,” and receive a certificate of commitment:

Join us by typing your name and email address…as we commit during Catholic Sisters Week to REFUSE TO USE!


Thank you!


You will be emailed a commitment certificate to post on your personal social media accounts. Please tag the Benedictine Sisters of Chicago and use the hashtags: #refusetouse #catholicsistersweek2023″
