Our community officially began a development program in 2004 when Sister Cabrini Schmitz, prioress, appointed Sister Elise Forst to be development director.
What is development? We see it as inviting those who care about us to join us in what we are about and to be a part of our future. We also want to spread the word of who we are and what we are doing.
Even though we didn’t use the term development in earlier years, we’ve always been doing development. Throughout our history we have enjoyed the support of many friends, and in recent years have benefited from our faithful Oblates and Alumnae. We are now broadening and deepening those connections.
There are many ways you can support and help us here at St. Scholastica, including::
For us, the most important part of development is gratitude. Every day we ask God’s blessings on all those who show their love and support in countless ways. We invite you to be a part of our life and service.
