Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill Celebrate Catholic Sisters’ Week
Catholic Sisters Week 2022
Digital Flower Show
The Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill will embrace the Catholic Sisters’ Week theme: Caring for the Earth, Caring for You. Plans are underway to increase the excitement and energy around Laudato Si’ by focusing efforts around care for the environment and community.
To kick off the week a food drive will be displayed in the motherhouse, encouraging monetary and non-perishable donations for the student food pantry at Seton Hill University. Recycling efforts will be showcased throughout the property and the replacement of fluorescent lighting will be switched to energy efficient LED lighting in the motherhouse. Catholic Sisters’ Week logos will be advertised and on display in the dining room and at the entrance to the building to remind the sisters living in the motherhouse to embrace the Laudato Si’ Action Platform in their daily lives.
A digital floral tour of the beauty and green thumb gardening skills at the motherhouse will be presented by the sisters and distributed through various social media outlets.
On Saturday, March 12 students from Seton Hill University will be invited to volunteer to begin spring preparations for the Sister of Charity garden. Sunday afternoon, March 13, a local botanical enthusiast, Jim Arnold, will present Emily Dickenson’s poetry and gardening expertise in the motherhouse.
To conclude the week, Region IV of LSWR has organized a Public Witness to Laudato Si’ with a blessing of the rivers and water at the confluence of the Ohio, Allegheny and Monogahela Rivers in Pittsburgh on International Rivers Day. Sisters from the community will attend.
