Each day we remember the intentions of all who ask for our prayers as we pray the Liturgy of the Hours, celebrate Eucharist and spend time in personal prayer. If you would like to have the Sisters pray for a special intention, we encourage you to send your request in an e-mail.
If you would like to make a donation in honor of a special occasion or in memory of a loved one, we will send a card in your name. Go to Contribute for more information.
