National Catholic Sisters Week – “Turning To Each Other” Sister Kathleen Mary Ryan

National Catholic Sisters Week – “Turning To Each Other” Sister Kathleen Mary Ryan

For the past 30 years, I have been privileged to work at Catholic Charities in the Diocese of Cleveland for the Social Action Office. Our mission was to demonstrate in concrete actions that the word of God has meaning in the here and now…in the problems of everyday life. Jesus knew we couldn’t be peacemakers alone—the road is too lonely, too tough; seemingly impossible.  But, with the support of my community, the Sisters of Notre Dame, I’ve been able to help build the Kingdom “on earth as it is in heaven.”
