Donors Inspired by Sisters’ Ministries
We are truly grateful for the generous spirit of many faithful friends who believe in our mission. Many of you are inspired by Catholic Sisters who laid a foundation for your successful careers and lives of service through Catholic education. Or, you have witnessed sisters touch souls as pastoral caregivers, or nurture a loved one back to health. Those special memories are truly a gift to us along with your financial support. We share a few here:

Support Our Mission
"Sitting in a Pius pew back in 1989, my wife Irene and I heard Sister Carol Thresher, SDS speak about the Sisters of the Divine Savior worldwide missions. We were especially touched by the dedication and love Sr. Carol expressed for people living in the favelas of São Paulo, Brazil, where she served for 18 years. Listening to how Sr. Carol opened her heart to Brazil’s impoverished people inspired us to open our hearts with our first gift to support the Salvatorian Sisters’ missions there." Russ H.
