The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth is proud to partner with the American Red Cross and be a part of all they do for our community, country, and the world. Our blood drive is important to patients in need, but the collection and distribution of blood is just a small part of all the Red Cross does. The enormity of what the Red Cross accomplishes every day is astounding. Every hour of the day, more than 1,200 people in America are assisted by the American Red Cross. More than 17,000 people receive lifesaving Red Cross health and safety training every day. Every day, the Red Cross provides more than 1,100 services to military members, their families, and veterans. About 170 times a day, Red Cross workers help families affected by a home fire or other disaster.

From a blood supply standpoint: The Red Cross – needs to collect more than 13,000 blood donations and more than 2,500 platelet donations each day. The blood collected by the Red Cross helps millions of patients in over 2,500 hospitals and other facilities across the country. 84 percent of blood donations are given at blood drives. We are proud to hold blood drives in partnership with the Red Cross, giving us all an opportunity to make a difference. Our next drive is coming up on January 31 at Nazareth, Crimmins Hall. We still have open appointment slots to fill. There are many ways you can help, but most importantly, we hope you come out to donate!

The newly blessed Grotto of Our Lady of Mokama at Nazareth Bhawan, Sokho, is a sacred sanctuary dedicated to the Virgin Mary. This serene grotto was meticulously designed to provide a peaceful place for prayer and reflection. The grotto is built from local stone and with the waste materials available on the campus, giving it a timeless and natural appearance. Upon entering the grotto, people are enveloped in a sense of calm and reverence.  Re. Father Martin Murmu, the parish priest of Sokho, blessed the grotto in the presence of our staff and our neighbors.
