Help our wishes come true

Sister Anita Gomes, standing, runs the Pratasha Sewing Center in a remote area of Bangladesh. “The young girls and women who come are jobless, left out of society, and uneducated," says Sister Anita Gomes. "We give them training in sewing and provide a job so that they can support their families. In between their training, we give them nutritious food for good health.”

I’ve always loved the title of the song, “A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes,” from Disney’s Cinderella. It seems especially meaningful today as I ask you to open your heart and join the Sisters of the Holy Cross in making wishes and dreams come true through our Ministry With the Poor.

As Christmas approaches I invite you to share in the joy our sisters experience when they minister with the poor around the world. Although every day they see the difficulties of men, women and children who are less fortunate, and realize firsthand their pain and challenges, they also witness the triumphs as these people strive for better lives.

The sisters have big wishes for these individuals. They are surprisingly modest — just the same hopes and dreams that we all have: food to eat, books to read, health, shelter and respite. These are the things that our Ministry With the Poor does so well.

With generous donations from individuals like you, Ministry With the Poor will continue to flourish. Your gift now to the Sisters of the Holy Cross will help us make these dreams come true. Whether your gift is $20, $50, $100 or $1,000 I promise you it will be appreciated, used wisely, and will make a true difference.

If you prefer, you also can choose to support our sisters’ retirement needs or make an unrestricted gift. Just go to DONATE NOW or give us a call at (574) 284-5641.

As the new year approaches, you and your family will be in our prayers for peace, love and hope. May all your dreams and wishes come true!
