40th Anniversary; Remembering, Transforming and Recommitting
"Do now what you wish to have done when your moment comes to die." -Angela Merici
Although volunteering is not an option at this moment, this is a good moment to plan to take up fulfilling volunteer opportunities when it is safe to do so. It is also a good moment for reaching out to friends and loved ones, especially those who we haven't connected with recently, and in some cases to plan to volunteer together in the future!
Volunteers currently serve the sisters in these roles:
Esperanza Threads is an Ursuline Sisters ministry that teaches industrial sewing skills to migrants and marginalized Clevelanders before assisting them with job placement. Classroom assistants know how to use a home sewing machine to construct a garment such as a t-shirt. Classes take place on the near-west side of Cleveland.
Drivers provide transportation for sisters living at Regina Healthcare in Richfield. Destinations are to appointments and occasionally to ministry assignments or to run errands. The sisters provide the car and gas.
Ursuline Sisters residing at Regina Health Care enjoy the company of others who are willing to spend a little time with them each week. Chat, read the newspaper, take walks within the building The task is simple but your company helps improve the quality of life for our sisters.
