About the Sisters’ Advent Project
The Advent Season is a time to begin preparing for the coming of our Lord whose birth we celebrate at Christmas. Families, both individual and parish, participate in traditional activities during this Church season. It is also a time to remember our sisters and brothers throughout the world who are in need of physical and spiritual comfort.
In this light, we would like to share the great need present in our mission houses in Brazil, Africa, Poland, and Italy and appeal to your kindness and generosity. Our religious order of Sisters, Handmaids of Reparation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (Handmaids of Reparation), has established and continues to staff these mission houses that are homes to orphaned girls and boys. With your support, the children will continue to receive an education to prepare them to become active members of the Catholic Church and their community, continue to restock our food pantries, Christmas gifts, and medical supplies.
During this Advent Season, we ask for your support of our Sisters’ efforts to educate the children in our mission houses throughout the globe. It is through education that a better way of life can be realized. The success of our missions is a combination of prayers, monetary donations, and commitment. It would be deeply appreciated if you could support the missions through your gift of prayer during this Christmas Season and/or a monetary contribution.
Jesus asked us to go out into the world and teach others about God’s love. By supporting and aiding the Handmaids of Reparation’s missionary work, you will truly answer Jesus’ call “to spread the Good News to the ends of the world…”
We are very thankful for your prayers and gifts in any amount.
May the Lord bless and reward you for your generosity and kindness. We wish you very blessed Advent Season.
Gratefully and in Christ’s love,
Sister Donatella Merulla and Sister Mary Attilia Todaro
