Appeal of the month
The Sisters of Our Lady of Schönstatt have been working in Burundi since 1962. Initially, they cared primarily for the sick and the poor, but they later became involved in the family, youth, and women’s apostolate, as the need for help in these areas became more apparent.
Today, there are several hundred lay groups under the Sisters’ guidance: for young people, mothers, single women, female academics and female students. Members are growing in the faith and finding strength and inspiration for a good and meaningful life.
The Sisters need a new place to live. They currently reside in a small and altogether inadequate apartment, where they also host parish gatherings. But they will have to vacate shortly, since the owner has other plans for it.
Will you help these Sisters build their new pastoral center to better serve their people?
