Repairs for Sisters' Cemetery

Recently in a severe thunderstorm, the Sisters' cemetery was damaged. The tree in the above picture repeatedly leaned toward the wall and its roots destabilized the wall, collapsing it. We will have to remove the tree and repair the wall - a very old wall made of huge stones. The cemetery is historic for the Community in the Southern Province, dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. Not only is this cemetery important to the Sisters, but Oblates, Associates, and others dear to the Sisters' hearts are buried here. Please help us reach our fundraising goal to remove the tree, restore this wall, and continue to keep the beauty of this very revered and sacred space.
