Celebrating Our Sisters
As part of National Catholic Sisters Week, we asked friends of the SC Community to help honor our Sisters – their lives, their mission and their works. By sharing their experiences, we learn that Catholic Sisters continue to leave a lasting legacy on the world today. Today we spotlight our Sisters in Anapra, Mexico. Hidden away on the outskirts of Juarez, Mexico, is a humble building that houses the Santo Niño Project. Within plain view of the United States border, a group of Sisters of Charity discovered a call to serve children with special needs. They cross the border from El Paso, Texas, each week to offer their services in a clinic built of cement, adobe and straw bale. Read more…

Food for the Soul
The Sisters of Charity Art Collection contains many beautiful reproductions of masters’ artwork. Some of these paintings are hung in locations not frequented by many.

Accompanying the painting is an account of how it came to be in the art collection, a brief history of the painting, and of the artist and his style. March's featured artist is Frank Duveneck.

New EAS Biography
Coming in March
American Saint, a new biography of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton by writer Joan Barthel, will be published on March 4 by St. Martin's Press. Barthel has long loved and studied Elizabeth’s life; she did research in the New York, Cincinnati, and Emmitsburg Archives, among others, and traveled to Italy with S. Irene Fugazy. The book uses a popular, contemporary style in order to reach people who might not read "religious" books while presenting the saint as a strong, passionate woman and leader who broke through conventional roles for women in her day.
