Gift of Prayer
Through the Gift of Prayer program, greeting cards for a variety of occasions are provided free of charge for your use. When you use a card, simply return the envelope with the name of the card recipient to our office. Your loved one will be entered into the Sisters’ Book of Remembrances. They will be remembered at a monthly Mass and in the prayers of all of our Sisters. Click on the Gift of Prayer booklet (left) to view our cards.
Greeting card categories include: birthdays, get well, congratulations, thinking of you (in both time of need and just because), weddings and wedding anniversaries, new baby, religious vocation, and sympathy. The artwork and photography featured on our greeting cards is a showcase of our Sisters’ talents. Featured artists are: Sr. Kay Francis Berger, Sr. Maria Bui, Sr. MaryLou Marchetti, Sr. Marie Miller and Sr. Jaye Nelson. The photography is the work of Sr. Marianne Saieg.
There is a suggested donation of $5.00 per greeting card.
Memorial and Honorarium booklets are also available. As with our greeting cards, the booklets are provided free of charge. When used, just return the envelope to us with the name of the person being memorialized or honored. His or her name will be entered in the Book of Remembrances. There is a suggested donation of $25.00 per booklet. Please request either white or purple hardcovers when ordering Memorial books.
