We, the Sisters of the Living Word, are participating in John Deere’s BIRDIES FOR CHARITY for the third year and invite your support!

BIRDIES FOR CHARITY is a fundraiser held in conjunction with the John Deere Classic PGA Golf Tournament (July 6-12). Each one-time flat donation or pledge benefits the Sisters of the Living Word plus John Deere will match up to 10%. Pledges/donations are due by July 1.

Special note as of May 28, 2020:  Birdies for Charity will continue but the actual event is being cancelled.  See press release here.

The proceeds from this fundraiser will support the forward-moving partnership we have created with the Wisconsin Religious Collaborative to ensure the ongoing efforts of our own ministries as well as our ongoing advocacy in several areas of social justice – homelessness, immigration, anti-human trafficking and care of creation.  We will also be giving special attention to those living in poverty who are being greatly affected by Covid-19.

Remembering Your Loved Ones
Nov 1 @ 12:00 am – Nov 29 @ 1:00 am

The pandemic prevents us from gathering for our annual Memorial Mass in memory of our departed loved ones and in celebration of the blessing their lives have been to us.

We can still be united in prayer on the Feast of All Souls, November 2. Let us pause, over the noon hour, to remember those we hold dear who have crossed the threshold into Eternal Life. Let us also include a blessing “for all the loved ones of those we would have liked to have gathered with in prayer this day.

Sisters of the Living Word and Associates will remember your deceased loved ones in prayer throughout the month of November and Mass will be offered for them every Tuesday throughout the year.

You are invited to email their names to Kim Hall at khall@slw.org. The names will be place in our “prayer basket” and remain before the Blessed Sacrament in our chapel for the year.
