How Your Gift to the Benedictine Sisters Makes a Difference
For more than 150 years the Benedictine Sisters of Erie have listened with the ear of our hearts to the needs of our region, our country, and our world. We have always relied on the financial generosity of others to help us address the needs of the Sisters and all those we serve.
Today, more than ever, the Benedictine Sisters of Erie, with our Oblates and our co-workers, continue our Mission and vision for a world where all people are treated with dignity and respect, where all creation is seen as sacred.
Making a gift to the Benedictine Sisters of Erie is so important! Your financial help makes it possible for us to continue our Charism of:
• Community prayer and spirituality
• Ministry to the poor and disadvantaged
• Working for justice, especially for women and children
• World peace and disarmament
• Stewardship, sustainability and partnership with the Earth
