UPDATE – December 13:

Thank you to everyone for your prayers and your kindness this week. Our Sisters in Philadelphia who were involved in the vehicle accident on Sunday have each given permission today for us to share her name with our friends of Nazareth.

We continue to ask for prayers for Sr. Boguslawa, Sr. Mary Anthony, Sr. Regina and Sr. John as they recover from their injuries.

As they convalesce, our injured Sisters have kindly asked for no visitors, please.

If you would like to send one or all of the Sisters a message, we have set up a special email address at PhiladelphiaSisters@nazarethcsfn.org. Please include the Sister’s name in the subject line. We will make sure she receives it.

If you would prefer to mail a card or letter, you may send it to:

Attn: Allison Taylor

Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth

2755 Holme Avenue

Philadelphia, PA 19152

Please indicate somewhere on the envelope which Sister should receive the message. Allison, one of our lay staff members, is helping to sort and deliver the messages to each Sister. 

All of our Sisters express their sincere gratitude for the outpouring of prayers, concern and support during this challenging time. We also ask for you to continue to respect our Sisters’ privacy as they heal.
