Recent initiatives supported by our donors
Private funds maintain operating costs so 100% of donations go straight to SCN missions.
Because of You
Thanks to generous support, in southern Maryland, children in foster care reunite with siblings for a vacation, veterans gather for support and relaxation, students attend retreats to prepare for high school, and homeless persons are offered a warm bed and meal for two weeks in the winter. Camp Maria provides an atmosphere of prayer, hospitality and simplicity in a peaceful, natural environment for group retreats and renewal programs.
Nazareth School in Chandapura, India completed an expansion to accommodate a growing student population. New facilities include physics, chemistry and biology labs with up-to-date equipment and spacious classrooms. Students grow intellectually, physically, spiritually, psychologically and socially.
The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and volunteers offer relief to victims of natural disasters throughout the United States. Supported by the generosity of donors, volunteers have assisted with home repairs and assistance with clean-up following tornadoes and floods in Indiana, West Virginia, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas, and Kentucky.
