A new report (PDF) from Foundations and Donors Interested in Catholic Activities (FADICA), Understanding U.S. Catholic Sisters Today, represents both a resource for learning about religious life and a bridge between women religious and the general public. The report explores the life of Catholic sisters in the United States, challenging stereotypes and identifying 10 key themes of religious life today. Launched alongside the report is a new website designed to encourage engagement with sisters, support for sisters, and exploration of life as a sister.
The website and comprehensive report is part of a larger effort to recruit and retain new members who will become young leaders, carrying congregations into future generations. To learn more about GHR's efforts to help sisters in the United States and abroad realize strong futures, contact us.
