The National Black Sisters' Conference has been shouting "Glory!  Halleluia!" since 1968.

We are Vowed Catholic Women Religious from many different Congregations.

We draw strength and courage from God.

We support one another in the faith and hold our elders in high esteem.

We have Associate & Auxiliary Membership

We study, speak & act on issues in the social, educational, economic & 
religious milieus in the United States.

We help promote positive self-image among ourselves and our 
African American people.

We believe & therefore we can hold out the light toward yet another tomorrow.
