Chirstmas 2020 : My gift to help the IHM Sisters

Dear Friend,

Who could have imagined the events that have unfolded in our world this year? Who could have foreseen the widespread uncertainty and struggle that was brought on by the pandemic

As women of deep faith and trust in God, we know that prayer is a powerful force during these difficult times. The IHM sisters want you to know that we keep all your intentions in our daily prayers.

Prayer ministry is an integral part of life for every sister at Pascucci Family Our Lady of Peace (OLP) Residence - referred to by many as the “powerhouse of prayer.” Prayers are continually offered for the intentions of our benefactors, special requests, and the needs of our world.

Sister Louis MarieSister Louis Marie has spent many years in the ministries of education and support services. Her quick smile and friendly presence invite a quiet peace to those around her. Now a prayer minister at OLP, Sister’s lifetime commitment to the needs of others continues to inspire everyone she meets.

Every year Sister Louis Marie contacts a record number of friends and family through our Silver Circle subscription program. She and her Silver Circle members faithfully support this program which benefits all retired IHM sisters.

Will you please consider making a Christmas gift of $60, $50, $40, or even $30 to help the retired IHM sisters today? Your support will help give hope to our sisters and to countless others who we are serving during this challenging time.

How has this difficult time of social isolation changed you? Have you considered the possibility that God might be taking us away from our distractions to bring us to a quiet place where we can hear His voice?

As we celebrate the season of Advent, please take this opportunity to be still and open our heart through prayer. Most especially, we ask for your prayers for the health and safety of our sisters.

Journey with me God, as You bring to fulfillment the birth of your son Jesus Christ in us.

We deeply appreciate the donations we have received during the past several months, especially during this uncertain time. We depend on your caring generosity to bridge the gap between our limited resources and the rising cost of care for our sisters.

On behalf of all of the IHM sisters, I wish you and your family a blessed Christmas and a happy New Year.

Yours in prayer,
Sister Ann Monica Bubser, IHM
Director of Development
