Honey Crisp Apples Celebrate Sweet Success

Our Mission Advancement Team dubs them our “road warriors,” but sharing about our international missions is truly a labor of love for Salvatorian Sisters of our North American Province.

This past summer, our sisters hit the road for weekend speaking engagements at parishes as far west as Santa Barbara, as far east as Saco, Maine – and many places in between.   Last night, we wrapped up another season of mission appeals, hosting the sisters for dinner with a sweet honey crisp apple at each place setting as a token of appreciation.

In 2015, 17 sisters traveled to 17 diocese on 13 different weekends and spoke at 123 Masses.

The travelled to these dioceses:

Diocese of Birmingham in Alabama
Archdiocese of Chicago in Illinois
Diocese of Erie in Pennsylvania
