2020 End of Year Appeal

We must regain the conviction that we need one another,
that we have shared responsibility for others and the world…

Pope Francis, Laudato Sí

Dear Friend,

It is our prayer that this letter finds you and your loved ones in good health. We are very aware that you are constantly challenged by the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic in your day-to-day lives. At the same time, during this worldwide crisis, we also hear the compassionate stories of people reaching out to offer care and assistance. Likewise, our sisters continue to strive to make a difference by

  • Finding creative ways to be educators by mentoring online or over the phone
  • Sewing protective face masks for our employees and organizations in our wider communities
  • Keeping in touch via phone or written notes with those who are isolated

These and many untold acts of kindness are a sign of hope for better days ahead. Through your financial support we can continue to serve children, women and those most in need.

Although we have fewer sisters in paid ministries to contribute financially to the province, we are blessed that we have 76 sisters between the ages of 70-74 years old who are healthy enough to work and they are contributing 33% of our total earnings. Even among sisters aged 80 – 89 years old, we have 17 who are working and contributing an additional 5% income.

While these earnings are helpful, your gift helps to cover the deficit we are experiencing. As always, we want to offer quality care and safety for our retired sisters. They, in turn, and all of our sisters, offer their prayers of gratitude for your donation to us.

We humbly come to you asking you to consider a year end gift for all our needs. We consider you a partner in our mission and thank you for your support.

In peace and hope,

Sister Debra Sciano, SSND

Provincial Leader
