Dear Friends,

See email below from the Sisters of Life regarding a woman they are serving right now who needs assistance. If you are able to help please respond to Sr. Grace Dominic at

Thank you and Blessed Paschal Triddum


Dear Co-Workers of Life,
We pray that you are well and preparing to enter deeply into Holy Week and the mystery of Redemption.
Currently we are serving a young woman, who is courageously choosing life despite early pressures from the father of the baby to have an abortion. 
Throughout her pregnancy, Ana has continued to work and remain in school at a community college. She is now having a difficult time paying for school and has an outstanding bill. She has just worked out a payment plan with the school and they have agreed to allow her to continue with classes as long as some funds come through. She is working hard to build a future for herself and her unborn baby girl.
We are reaching out to you all today seeking support for this young and heroic soul. First, she would do well to receive your prayers - particularly as we enter the holiest week of the year. Secondly, if you are be able to support Ana financially we would be so grateful. If you are able to assist in this way, please respond to this e-mail for further information.
May God bless you all and fill your hearts with Easter joy.
Peace and blessings,
Sr. Grace Dominic, SV
We check our e-mail Monday through Thursday, once daily. If you are in need of a timely response, please call (212) 737-0221.
