The Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia
are participating in
A global day dedicated to giving.
Tuesday, November 30, 2021
12:00 A.M. – 11:59 P.M.
On November 30, 2021, join the Sisters of St. Francis in celebrating #GivingTuesday—a global giving event at the start of the holiday season. This year’s #GivingTuesday is right after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. You can start the holiday season by supporting the Sisters of St. Francis in a kitchen renovation project at Assisi House.
For over 40 years, the kitchen at Assisi House has been used to cook meals for the retired sisters of St. Francis. The sisters gather during mealtimes to strengthen their bond as sisters, to share their stories with one another, and to be part of the community as a whole. Recently, however, the kitchen has needed some updates such as new equipment and added serving areas. Some equipment no longer works at all and other areas need a complete remodel. These changes are expensive and are currently being completed in stages. Any contribution to this project will help the sisters complete the work more quickly.
#GivingTuesday is a movement that seeks to build a more generous world. It inspires giving to organizations serving those in need to bring about real change in our communities.
The Sisters of St. Francis reflect this same mission in all we do: “As vowed women of the Church, we respond with diverse gifts in a spirit of collaboration and of mutual service to the needs of others, especially the economically poor, the marginal, and the oppressed. Seeking to participate in the Spirit’s action in the world, we direct our personal and corporate resources to the promotion of justice, peace, and reconciliation” (Mission Statement). On this day you can give back to our retired sisters who have given their lives in service to others.
On November 30, 2021, please support #GivingTuesday by giving to the Sisters of St. Francis.
