Catherine’s Tea

Catherine’s Tea Meets Women’s History Month 

March is Women’s History Month, and Catherine McAuley Center is celebrating by honoring the courage and perseverance of women throughout history, and the legacy of Catherine McAuley that inspired the mission of CMC today.
All month long, connect with us through weekly emails and Facebook posts, live Q&As with experts discussing the five Critical Concerns identified by the Sisters of Mercy, and tune in for a chance to be entered for our exciting giveaways! Congratulations to our winners of bread baskets from Great Harvest Bread Company.
