Catholic sisters are serving in the most remote and impoverished areas among refugees, the survivors of humanitarian tragedies and war, and with the ill and dying of global epidemics. They connect their on the ground ministries to the world's poor, to their organized advocacy for justice within the halls of government and at the United Nations. Sisters promote peace, train young women for leadership, and bring spiritual consolation, hope and healing to multitudes of the world's population. These proceedings highlight three areas of endeavor: sustainable agriculture in Africa and Latin America, the work of sisters at the United Nations, and finally, the involvement of sisters in earthquake torn Haiti, providing an inspiring look at the courageous, creative and spirit-filled work of women religious around the globe.
