For the SNDs in California, late August arouses profound gratitude in our hearts! On August 30, 1924, 11 courageous SNDs arrived in Los Angeles from Ohio. Since then, we have been entrusted with the care of thousands of individuals--in schools, parishes, health care, social services and much more. We are honored to include you among our partners, joining with us to build a house of love in California. We offer our prayers for you and your loved ones on this 97th anniversary!
Please enjoy this video commemoration of our call to California--and special thanks to Jen Coito, our "master videographer"! The video is best viewed in full screen.

PS--We offer our prayers for the people of Afghanistan, all of our military personnel, and those impacted by Hurricane Ida. Many years ago, parishioners from the Diocese of Houma-Thibadoux, Louisiana, were very generous to our Uganda mission through the Mission Coop Program. May the angels protect you in this hour of need.
