May 2022

Dear Friends! We are overwhelmed by your generosity with which you are reaching out to all those in need. Our Sisters are involved on many different levels – volunteer work, direct service together with other organizations, and organizational and leadership level - in all three countries, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia our sisters are fulfilling different offices in the National Leadership Conferences of Religious (president, vice, president, secretary) working together and coordinating the efforts of other religious communities. We hold regular meetings with the superiors of these three districts and make common decisions about how to pace and how to use the funds that have been collected thanks to your generous support.

On April 28th We Distributed 30,000 Euros Among the Three Districts!

In Slovakia our Sisters joined the efforts of the Salesian community and are using the funds in their projects. To learn more about how our Eastern European Sisters are making a difference on the frontlines and more, click here...

“We are pioneers, working in each local situation
sharing a vision of transformation with special concern for women, children and family life.”

for liberation, we encourage ourselves and our sisters and brothers to work collaboratively with the oppressed peoples of the world
to promote justice and peace in our time.”
