Ministering to others is our mission and charism. Ministering to the older Sisters within the community is also an important mission. Ministering to the needs of our aging community of Sisters requires a major portion of both our human and financial resources. Many of our Sisters who have returned to Oldenburg, along with a staff of healthcare co-workers care for approximately 60 Sisters living in St. Clare Hall, our healthcare center. Included in their care is providing transportation for the Sisters’ healthcare appointments.
As more of our Sisters require the assistance of walkers, wheelchairs and scooters, it has become increasingly more difficult to transport some of our Sisters to their appointments, and in some cases, an ambulance transport is required.
To increase our ability to meet the transportation needs of our Sisters and to reduce our reliance upon ambulance transports, we are seeking donations to purchase a used mobility van at an approximate cost of $35,000 to $40,000. If you would care to donate to this cause, please click on the donate button at the top of the page. We are grateful for your prayers and the many ways you support us and our mission.
