March is Women's History Month. Sister Maryann Lopiccolo, delegate for religious for the Diocese of Brooklyn, highlights outstanding Catholic women to remember.
And we must not forget Marguerite D'Youville, founder of the Grey Sisters of the Immaculate Conception. Despite a life marked by trials and sadness, she devoted herself to charitable works. She served the needy with humility, gentleness and compassion, reaching out to the poor, outcast, sick, elderly and orphaned. Marguerite Youville was canonized by the Church on December 9, 1990.
