Great Give Day

Great Give Day
On Thursday, May 10
the Sisters of Charity, BVM
will participate in
24-hour online giving event!

Your donation will help provide new park benches at
Mount Carmel to replace ones that are 50 years old.

Replacing the unsafe benches and purchasing six more allows
sisters to rest as they traverse the long Pine Walk to the cemetery to
visit their deceased sisters. Your gift will enable BVMs, family, friends, and
the local community to enjoy the beauty of Mount Carmel all year round.

“What a better way to enjoy the blue sky, beautiful clouds,
and great trees above the Mississippi River than to sit on
‘my’ special bench. It would be wonderful to have enough
benches for more sisters and visitors to enjoy the outdoors.”
—Sister Eleanor Craggs, BVM
