The Association for Colleges of Sisters of St. Joseph has been awarded a mini-grant from National Catholic Sisters Week (NCSW).  NCSW is an annual celebration that takes place from March 8–14, 2016. Created to honor women religious, it is a series of events that instruct, enlighten, and bring greater focus to the lives of these incredible women.
