In these weeks of Advent, our minds and hearts turn to loved
ones as we anticipate time will we share or the special gifts we
will exchange this Christmas. Our minds and hearts also turn
to those with needs greater than our own. There are many ways
we can ease their needs.
This December the U.S. Bishops are again asking all Catholics to
consider retired religious in their Christmas giving. Could
you please include our retired Sisters' needs this Christmas or in
your end-of- year giving?
We know that with the rising cost of medical care and with the
fact that people are living longer, few people can be assured of
living their retirement years in comfort and security.
Religious men and women, who never received a comparable wage to
lay people, health care benefits, matching dollars paid into social
security or a retirement benefit, depend on the good financial
planning of their communities, the earnings of their active
members, government health care assistance and the generosity of
people like you.
If you have given in the past and can help our retired Sisters
again, thank you! If you are able to give a first gift, thank
you! One-hundred percent of your gift will be used to meet
the daily and medical needs of the Sisters 70 years of age or older
who earnings do not cover their expenses.
Simply visit our Donate Today page.
It will take you to a form you can print out and send with your
check or lead you to our secure credit card giving page. Also
please consider our retired Sisters' needs in your estate
planning. You have our thanks and prayers.
