From the President
Thank you for expressing interest in CSED. Through the means offered by people like you, we are able to see a dramatic increase in the number of women inspired to lead lives united to God in the midst of the world, helping each other to do their ordinary work in an extraordinary way. CSED supports initiatives where young women develop into strong, ethical leaders; mothers and grandmothers generously transmit their experience to next generations; and women of all ages become engaged, articulate and well-formed citizens. Inspired by the Christian understanding of the person, CSED champions programs that help everyone live happier and more fulfilling lives.
We welcome you to come and see some of these sponsored programs, virtually through their web pages or in person by contacting the local centers.
