How to use these websites:

Look at the About section to understand their sense of identity, history, and mission (purpose).
Look for the Ministries section to understand the service work they are doing, sometimes they have many ministries.
Pick one or two to include in your presentation. You can also use National Catholic Reporter to search for more information about your chosen community.

*If you have a contemplative order (those noted with a *), you will not really see ministries listed. Contemplative orders do less community service and are more focused on internal ministry.
