Support Our Mission and Sisters

Your generosity made a difference in our daily lives

Dear Friend,

“What did you do?” When children hear someone say this to them it rarely is about something good. However, we Sisters, can say this to you and assure you that it is very, very good.

So “what did you do” this past year:

  • You helped us pay for several major maintenance projects at our Motherhouse including heat exchangers to provide hot water, a rock boundary around our ponds, a new convection oven for our kitchen and an updated panel for the fire alarm system.
  • You helped us meet the daily needs of the Sisters not covered by our earnings and so allowed us to transfer less from our retirement fund to meet those needs.
  • You helped us to grow our retirement fund so that it may continue to help us with our retired Sisters’ needs now and in the future.
  • You helped us to assist persons in need and support organizations that provide assistance to those in need at the local, national and international levels.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers, love and support! Whether you have been a long-time donor or blessed us with your first gift this year, know that you have the gratitude and prayers of all the Sisters. God bless you and your loved ones in every way.

Development Director
