Sister Katie Fund

“The twin pillars of the Daughters of Charity Ministries of Chicago, Marillac Social Center and St. Vincent de Paul Center, are our clients and our staff.” - Sister Katie Norris, D.C.

The Sister Katie Endowment Fund was established when Sister Catherine Mary Norris, D.C., better known as Sister Katie, left her leadership role at St. Vincent de Paul Center to serve on the Daughters’ East Central Province Provincial Council.

What is the Sister Katie Endowment Fund?

Many of the Marillac St. Vincent supporters wanted to thank Sister Katie for her 20 years of dedication and commitment. They established an endowment fund and, to honor Sister Katie’s request, restricted the fund to the following areas:

  • Assist parents with unforeseen needs

  • Provide funds to staff for continuing education and training

  • Provide special recognition

Through her example, Sister Katie will continue to energize all of us to serve the poor. We are blessed to have such an example in our lives.

Please consider a gift to the Sister Katie Endowment Fund to help to ensure that her legacy lives on.
