St. Nicholas House: Exciting News!

The fundraising to rebuild St. Nicholas House is off to a great start in 2021, and the sisters are excited to share the news that we have $50,000 pledged for a matching-donation campaign in the month of May.

 

Help us turn $50,000 into $100,000 this month! This will be a huge boost towards our goal of $235,000 this year. Every contribution is important!
