For the ninth consecutive year, local Catholic Sisters representing congregations in the Greater Boston Area gathered with over 100 sisters, associates, and friends on January 8, the Sunday closest to January 11, to mark this national day and pray for an end to human trafficking, also known as modern-day slavery. The vigil was hosted by the Boston Unit of LCWR at the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston Motherhouse.
