Catholic Women in the US

From Community Press Cincinnati:
The Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, along with 20 women religious congregations from greater Cincinnati, are featured in a nationally touring exhibit that celebrates the contributions of Catholic women religious in the United States.

The exhibit, "Women & Spirit, Catholic Sisters in America," starts Saturday, May 16, and runs through Wednesday, Aug. 30, at the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal. The Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C., will also host the traveling exhibit at a later date.

The exhibit tells the story spanning three centuries of Catholic Sisters in America who served with compassion, dedication, determination and faith in education, health care, and social services. Sisters ministered as missionaries, serving the poor and marginalized. They embraced the tide of immigrants in the 18th and 19th centuries, welcoming all nationalities into neighborhoods, schools and parishes.
