Contribute to St. Scholastica

The sisters appreciate everyone who contributes to our ministry through:

The sisters who live in the infirmary, our "wisdom women," always appreciate being remembered by the students and families they served before their retirement. Cards, letters, amateur performers, and visitors are cherished and welcomed.

A message from our Prioress:

We remember all our supporters in our daily prayer and celebration of the Eucharist.

Our prayer and hope for each of you is that you are experiencing the full measure promised in Luke 6:38: "Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure-- pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return." (New American Standard Bible)

Sister Maria DeAngeli, Prioress

A Snippet..

In this our Christmas appeal, I thank you for your generosity during the past year and ask for your continued financial assistance, specifically for our elderly and infirm sisters who continue to give their lives to the Lord through prayer for all of us. Let me tell you about one such sister.

During the months that our community discerned and shared concerns about the future, 90+ year-old Sister Josita Nahlen emerged as our wisdom figure, reminding the resistant and fearful among us that “It’s time to move on” in faith and hope. Sister Josita not only contributed her wisdom, but also her courage, hope, and inspiration for us to make challenging decisions with confidence and trust.
