Help The Dominican Sisters in Puerto Rico

Please help the Sisters of St. Francis provide support for the Dominican Sisters to Rebuild!

The Sisters of St. Francis remain committed to helping the poor. One way in which we can do that is by supporting the Dominican Sisters in Puerto Rico as they rebuild after a devastating earthquake. The magnitude-6.4 earthquake on January 7, 2020, caused massive damage to buildings, streets, and utilities. The people in these communities became homeless in seconds—including the sisters and the families who work so hard to survive and have very little money to rebuild. The lack of resources has stopped the Dominican Sisters from doing what they were called to do—help women through addiction programs, train the community members in vocational trades, and provide valuable support with social work programs on the island.

As we approach the holiday season, please consider helping the Sisters of St. Francis support the Dominican Sisters by donating today. Every bit helps and as the Dominican Sisters rebuild the physical structures, they can also rebuild the faith and dreams of the communities on the island.

Help us today. We thank you.
