The Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland has joined other funders across the country to support Catholic sisters in their response to the immediate needs of communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In recognition of the vital and trusted role Catholic sisters play in delivering services, the GHR Foundation and the Sisters of Mercy launched the Sisters on the Frontlines initiative, which supports sisters active in their missions to provide monetary assistance to individuals and families adversely affected by COVID-19.
The Sisters of Mercy piloted this initiative by giving out $1,000 each to 100 sisters, and the initiative is expanding to support more sisters across the country.
The Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland is pleased to support sisters in Northeast Ohio through this initiative and has leveraged funds from the Hilton Fund for Sisters, the Congregation of St. Joseph and the Conference of Religious Leadership to distribute more than $60,000 among applicant congregations. We are pleased to announce that the following congregations have received funding so far:
|Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland|
|Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown|
|Sisters of Notre Dame, Christ the King Province|
|Congregation of St. Joseph|
|Sisters of the Humility of Mary|
|Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine|
|Dominican Sisters of Peace|
|Sisters of St. Joseph of the Third Order of St. Francis|
|Sisters of the Incarnate Word|
As funds are distributed and used to support congregational communities, stay tuned for updates on how the Sisters on the Frontlines initiative is making a difference.
