Be a part of all we do. 
For over 165 years, our monastic lives of work and prayer have been enriched by the generosity of those who partner with us. Only through your financial support can we continue to work for good in the world. Through your generosity, we can respond to the needs of children, women, seniors, the poor, and the unemployed in the Erie region and beyond. Please join us in our life of prayer, community, and good work with a gift. With you we can continue to be a prayerful, peaceful presence in our troubled world. 
To continue our life of work and prayer, we need your help.
