Hoffman Honors Women Religious

MARCH 7th, 2018

In honor of National Catholic Sisters Week, March 8 - 14, Hoffman would like to thank all women religious congregations for their important contributions to society in the United States and around the world.

Many individuals at Hoffman have been positively impacted by Catholic Sisters personally and professionally. Through our work, Hoffman is honored to assist women religious congregations every day.

In appreciation for all that women religious have done and continue to do, Hoffman has made a donation to the National Religious Retirement Office (NRRO) to help fund the elder-care needs of religious congregations.

In addition, some Hoffman staff members have shared their thoughts on how they've been positively impacted by Catholic Sisters:

"It is an honor to work with Sisters throughout the country. To be such an important part of several congregations' vision for their future is extremely rewarding." - Julie Heiberger, senior project architect

"The spirit of women religious, continuing to be at the forefront of issues and needs in our world, is an inspiration to me. With much appreciation for all you do to make a positive difference!" - Patrick Del Ponte, vice president of planning

"As a Construction Superintendent, I spend a large amount of time physically on the construction sites where the Sisters live. Some of my projects have lasted nearly two years, and during this time I have gotten to know a wide number of individual nuns. The Sister projects that I have worked on have been my favorite projects in my construction career. Instead of working for a single owner or even a building committee, I know I am working for an entire community of women who are caring and committed to the project's success. The Sisters I have worked with have appreciated my efforts and have encouraged me in my work. I have had the opportunity not only to work with individual sisters but also to form friendships and interact with them outside of work. I know the communities care for the craftsmen that work on their projects. I have been told repeatedly that the community is praying for the workers safety. I have had Sisters bake cookies for the men and pass them out personally. I have seen them open their facilities and provide hot coffee to the entire crew on the coldest winter days. Living in a society where cost and schedule drive all construction projects, it is so nice to experience integrity, compassion, and commitment in my relationships with those for who I am building. - Dave Dickinson, field project manager

"The small community on the southern Door Peninsula in Wisconsin where I grew up was blessed to be served by women religious from the time of its settlement in 1853. For generations, the Sisters were essential to education, caring for the sick and disabled, and perpetuating the Catholic family. I'm truly grateful for all they've done to make our little community a wonderful place to call home." - Sandy Orsted, vice president of administration

“Having grown up with aunts who were Catholic Sisters, I was fortunate to witness first-hand the important work they did and the lives they touched. I feel privileged to have the opportunity now to assist Sisters when they’ve placed their trust in Hoffman.” - Scott Pigeon, director of marketing
