Care of Our Sisters



International Sisters Retirement FundInternational Sisters Retirement Fund

Our International Retirement Fund meets the needs of 460 retired School Sisters of St. Francis. Medical care, housing, memory care and transportation are all provided for the retired sisters, who have served so many people over their lifetime. The Retirement Fund is 47 percent unfunded, so the need to support our sisters is great. The cost of care is $23,000 per sister, per year. The national average for support of a retired sister is $41,000.
