Hoffman Honors Women Religious details

Hoffman Honors Women Religious

MARCH 7th, 2021

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:

"I am so blessed and honored to work with many congregations from all over the country. To be a trusted partner, to work with a congregation on a vision for their future, is extremely rewarding. The relationships I have developed over these many years are deeply cherished. I can’t think of a better market to lead at Hoffman!" — Julie Heiberger, religious market leader | senior project architect

“Any project with the Catholic Sisters comes with extra special meaning and a great sense of service. I welcome and value the faith-based influence that their members and missions bring to my workplace on a daily basis.” — Jon Rynish, project architect

“I grew up in a small, farming community in rural Wisconsin where the Sisters were our teachers and our neighbors. They were a part of our family. I am a product of the schools in which they taught. I learned from them that that you do what needs to be done for all those in need of help. Today, I feel I have come full circle with the Sisters in our communities across the nation. I am an architect working for a company that is helping to build their homes, their schools, and their hospitals in the spirit of what they have always done: responding to the need that is greatest. I am truly grateful for what the Sisters have taught me and that they are still a part of who I am to this very day. Thank you!” — Chad Ulman, vice president of architecture

“I am so thankful that Hoffman has the privilege of assisting so many congregations that do a tremendous amount of good for the communities that we live in. It is an honor to be their partner. Thank you for your trust, and God bless you!” — Sam Statz, president

“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

"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 of St. Francis of the Holy Cross were essential for education, caring for the sick and disabled, and perpetuating the Catholic faith. In the early days, they even taught in the public schools. I have the pleasure of working with Sister Claudette Jeanquart to record oral histories about the countless ways they have contributed to our community. The more we learn, the more grateful we become." - Sandy Orsted, vice president of administration

“I have been greatly encouraged in my work in efficiency, on-site solar energy, and carbon tracking by the great commitment and bold, thoughtful choices by the many Sisters we have worked with. It is refreshing to work with Sisters with clear vision and a willingness to act.” — Mark Hanson, director of sustainable services

“A life not lived for others is not a life…St. Teresa of Calcutta. This reminds me so much of our Catholic Sisters. Everything they do, what they stand for, and how they live their lives, is always for others. A huge thank you to all of the Sisters for the impact you have made on our lives. Thank you for loving like Jesus did, caring so much for our environment, helping those that society has turned away from and forgotten, and especially for all the prayers said for our family during a very challenging 2020.” — Tina and Terry Ellenbecker, vice president of field operations
