Where do your donations go?
Help us support the Adorers’ mission. Many of our sisters now volunteer their services rather than hold salaried positions, making your financial support even more important.
Adorers always have served where resources are scarce. Your support of our “home missions” will enable us to continue serving in inner city schools, on Indian reservations, and with migrant or refugee families needing health and pastoral care, language skills, legal assistance and other services.
Maria De Mattias Education Center, led by Sister Kris Schrader, is a community center and school that for more than 25 years has provided secondary education, technical training and adult education to rural Guatemalans. The center also includes a regional library that serves 14 communities, promotes reading and improved literacy, and helps teachers improve their skills.
Sangre de Cristo Health Care Project, led by Sister Dani Brought, provides direct medical, dental, vaccination, pharmacy and lab services to nearly 100,000 people each year in San Pedro Ayampuc and Chinautla, Guatemala. The project, founded in October, 1995, also offers programs in health education and promotion, environmental health and sanitation.
Centro Salud Integral Sangre de Cristo, founded by the Adorers of the Blood of Christ in October 2000, serves the poor of La Paz, Bolivia with such services as child day-care, meals, education and tutoring, a program for older adults, care for children with special needs, health care and legal advice. Long time former director, Sr. Ann Fearday, along with Sr. Janet Marie Wilhelm and two Adorers from Bolivia, sustain the parish of Sangre de Cristo, which has no pastor. Salud Integral, through an agreement with the bishop of El Alto, also tends to the pastoral and social needs of people in the very poor Camata area eight hours away by vehicle. The sisters began an agricultural project in two Camata schools to start improving residents’ quality of life.
Help us care for our older sisters in assisted living and skilled care. These Adorers have spent their lives teaching, leading and giving to others. Now, it’s their turn to receive in their final years.
The current median age of our sisters is 78. The cost of caring for our retired sisters is only partially met by Social Security and pension income. The remainder comes from our reserves and contributions from generous benefactors. The powerhouse of prayer that rises like incense from our retirement centers in Wichita, Kansas; Columbia, Pennsylvania; and Ruma, Illinois, is our gift to you, our loyal and generous benefactors.
