The Catholic Church is the largest private provider of healthcare, social services and education in the state of California. Among those providers are:

Editor’s note: For decades, the nuns in California  have been  the heart and the backbone and brains of the Catholic schools and hospitals…

· 40 Catholic hospitals, which annually assist nearly five million patients;

· 19 Catholic healthcare centers, which annually assist 920,000 individuals;

· 53 colleges and universities, which enroll 45,700 students;

· 123 Catholic high schools, which serve 77,854 students;

· 581 Catholic elementary schools, which serve 157,000 children; and

· 197 special centers for social service, which annually serve 5.4 million people of various ethnicity, social status and religion

(Statistics taken from the Official Catholic Directory, P. J. Kenedy & Sons, 2008.)


One small way to say thank you to the Sisters who have tirelessly, unstintingly given of their lives to help make the world a better place.
