Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity have joined other local volunteers in spending thousands of hours sorting and repacking materials for needy villages around the world at The Salvatorian Mission Warehouse, St. Nazianz, WI. One of our Sisters, Sister Dolores Hermann, OSF, can honestly say she has volunteered around 30 years. This is a humble, often tedious ministry, that stirs feelings close to the heart.
Salvatorians Brother Regis Fust, SDS, Sister Dora Zapf, SDS and Brother William Hoefgen, SDS, once missionaries in far away poor countries themselves, are now ‘apostles for our time’ in handling and shipping large amounts of material in this mission supply program. All warmly welcome Franciscans to be part of the volunteer family. Both religous congregations, Salvatorians and Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity, share some common geographical roots in the early foundings of our communities.
What kinds of materials are shipped?
Food, vitamins, medicines, clothing, soap, bandages, anti-itch cream, baby wash, toothbrushes, wash cloths, blankets
What countries are served?
Tanzania, Ghana, Panama, Guinea-Bissau, Honduras, Guatemala, Peru, Bolivia, Nicaragua,Paraguay
