Extension launches #SisterSelfie during National Catholic Sisters Week

Catholic Extension, a Chicago-based national fundraising organization that builds churches and aids the Catholic Church in America's poorest places, is honoring women religious working in the 90 dioceses it supports by sharing their stories on its website and in social media.

The recognition is how Catholic Extension is taking part in National Catholic Sisters Week March 8-14.

The organization has invited followers to take a photo of themselves with a religious sister who has impacted their lives and post it, along with the hashtags #SisterSelfie and #NCSW.
