Weaving together a new heart for intercultural life and mission

Beer Garden Fundraiser Improves Lives Worldwide

In the spirit of St. Francis’ and St. Clare’s emphasis on hospitality and care for the Earth, the proceeds from our August 8 “Sister Water Beer Garden in a Box” fundraiser will go to provide access to clean water for people around the world who are served by our sisters’ ministries.

Among the thousands of people who will benefit from the proceeds are:

  • School children in India who receive clean water from our rain harvest and filtering system
     
  • Families in Peru who use our filter to make contaminated urban water clean and drinkable
     
  • Sisters in our formation house in Tanzania who otherwise would have to drink and bathe in water with dangerously high mineral content
     
  • Grade school and high school age girls who live in our hostel in India, who otherwise have limited access to toilet and shower facilities
