114. Celebrating Catholic Sisters Week

Today we celebrate Catholic Sisters Week by hearing the vocation story of Sister Jane Wakahiu, LSOSF, Ph.D., the Associate Vice President, Program Operations, and Head of Catholic Sisters at the Conrad Hilton Foundation. Sr. Jane is a member of the Institute of the Little Sisters of Saint Francis, Kenya. She provides leadership and direction of the Hilton Foundation’s Program Department operations budget, contracts, consultant management, and policy implementation. She also contributes to the Foundation’s strategic planning.

Prior to joining the Foundation, Sr. Jane was the executive director of the African Sisters Education Collaborative (ASEC), where she implemented many programs by working closely with leadership conferences, major superiors, religious congregations and institutes, twenty-three partner colleges and universities in the United States and Africa, and major foundations. Sr. Jane has taught extensively at the undergraduate and graduate level and has a breadth of teaching and administrative experience from leading a high school in Kenya and as a leader of women’s organizations. She is the author and editor of two books and serves as a contributing writer for the Global Sisters Report and her peer-reviewed articles have been published in national and international journals. Sr. Jane holds a Ph.D. in human development from Marywood University, a Master of Arts degree from Saint Bonaventure University, and a Bachelor of Education from the Catholic University of Eastern Africa.  Today we’re Celebrating Catholic Sisters Week, a national celebration of Catholic sisters because they shine a light on mission, and spirituality while building community together.
