Title can be sung to “You Outa Be in Pictures”

“MARCH is National Women’s History Month

The overarching theme for March 2010 is Writing Women Back into History…The history of women often seems to be written with invisible ink. Even when recognized in their own times, women are often not included in the history books.

National Women’s History Month provides an excellent venue to recognize and celebrate women’s historic achievements as well as an opportunity to honor women within our families and communities. What will you do to celebrate National Women’s History Month?”

National Women’s History Project

During Women’s History Month, we want to celebrate and honor the women in our own community. All of you, Sisters and Associates, are invited to write an autobiographical sketch (Please, no invisible ink!) and send it to Trish Carney by February 26th. We will feature them on our website and possibly put them all into a book!

I know many of you will question, “Me? Write about me?” And, we answer, “Yes, YOU!”  God has acted in your life in unique and wondrous ways and all of us want to hear your story. If you’re not sure how to start, perhaps the following will help:

  • Begin by taking a look at your life.
  • Ask yourself these basic questions to help find the direction of your story. Pull out a piece of paper and answer these questions:
    • How did I get to where I am now?
    • What experiences in my life have shaped me?
    • What do I believe from the core of my being?  And why?
    • If I could tell only one story about my life, what would it be?

Jesus challenges us, “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before all, that they may know your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matt. 5, 14-16.

Let your light shine before us so we may honor you and together praise God for the remarkable women who are Holy Family.
