As sponsors, we publicly identify with, exert appropriate influence on, and provide various levels of support to these ministries. In so doing, we fulfill our responsibility of stewardship for our heritage, mission, and resources.
During her early years in the congregation, Sr. John Celeste Weitzel ministered in education but later studied to be a physical therapist. When she moved from Baltimore to the Aston area in November 2015, she came with a dream—to work with our sisters at Assisi House who were not getting PT for a specific problem.
Where Donations Go cogency
Where Does My Donation Go?
100% of your donation goes directly to the ministries—no administrative costs.
We are touched by the reality that a good steward is the caretaker of God’s many gifts. You have been a gift to us despite the financial struggles of these days. Both those we serve and our sisters are grateful for your gifts and we thank God each day for your support. The following shows how your funds are received.
TOTAL DONATIONS FOR 2014
The Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia assume operational costs of the Foundation; therefore, every dollar that our donors give is used solely for the ministries and retirement. All funds that are received in a fiscal year are disbursed at the end of that fiscal year. Each year congregational leadership determines where the disbursement of unrestricted funds are most needed.
