With many of our Sisters aging, the reality of retirement and its costs has hit home. In 1991, a benefactor, hearing of the plight of the Sisters, suggested that it was time to "adopt our nuns." He didn't intend that people take the Sisters into their homes but into their hearts.
Today, our Sisters' hearts are full of love for their extended family. They pray everyday for their adopters needs and intentions, and are delighted to hear from them. Bonds between many of the adopters and Sisters have formed, thus making us truly one big family.

A suggested donation of $160-$500 will enroll you in the "Adopt a Sister" program for 1 year. Your gift will help provide for the Sisters' retirement needs, and in gratitude for your faith and friendship, your "adopted" Sister will pray for you each day for a year.
Join our friends of all faiths who have experienced the transforming power of prayer and loving friendship,every day of the year. Whether the Adopted Sister is for yourself, a family member, or friend in need of spiritual strength, you will find comfort in knowing that ones' intentions will be remembered each day by your spiritual prayer partner.
