Spring is on its way bringing Opening Day Games to cities across our nation! With the crack of the bat and the roar of the crowd-we bring you the opportunity to enter our Cardinals vs. Reds Raffle that will award four box-seat tickets and accommodations to its lucky winners! The game is Saturday, June 20th.
This is our seventh year offering the Cardinals vs. Reds Raffle, and each year S. Pat Murray has coordinated the effort as a means to raise funds for our retired Sisters.
About S. Pat … having served for over 30 years in Missouri, S. Pat became a loyal Cardinals fan, but when she returned to live in the Oldenburg Motherhouse, she suddenly found herself residing among Reds fans. Knowing how S. Pat felt somewhat alone living in Reds country, friends from Missouri offered Cardinals vs. Reds ticket packages, and true to S. Pat’s nature of wanting to find a way to help the community’s retired Sisters, the Cardinals vs. Reds Raffle was born.
While many of our retired Sisters continue to be active in ministry, most no longer earn an income. Caring for our retired Sisters consumes the largest share of our funds and we must provide this funding ourselves as we are not funded by any parish or diocese.
All proceeds benefit our retired Sisters who have ministered in parishes and schools across the Midwest, and now need your support in their senior years.
Though S. Pat is no longer able to coordinate all the raffle details, she continues as its honorary chairperson and will draw the winning tickets on May 1st.
