Why I Give

“Thank you, Sisters, for the good education at Rapid City Cathedral. I’m still using the education…it was great – Merry Christmas.”

—Jim K., Omaha, NE

“Many of the Sisters have been such an important part of our lives over the years, especially my mother Charleen Reilly O’Connell, who attended Holy Angels Academy in Milwaukee and then Clarke College. Many of my siblings were blessed by your sisters who taught us at Wahlert High School. I fondly remember Sr. St. James who inspired me to love geometry and believe in my limited motor abilities. Thank you for all your work and dedication to make the world a better place.”

—Stephen O., Winter Park, FL

“In gratitude for the BVM Sisters who formed who I am, and gave me a lifelong love of learning and awareness of the needs of the poor. God Bless!”

—Linda W., Solon, OH

“Sister Vivina Bly was my first grade teacher and friend. The BVMs were a great influence all my life. ❤ I was so very blessed by great women.”

—Mary Jo B., Dubuque, IA

“I was taught by many BVM Sisters at All Hallows Elementary School, Sacramento, CA. An excellent education and very positive influence on my life to this day!”

—Janet D., Lincoln, CA
