Make a donation to the SCN Lay Mission Volunteer Program
Supplying our volunteers with tools and materials is always needed. Your sponsorships and donations make these life-changing volunteer trips possible.
The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth have a long tradition of responding in times of disasters. Some examples include flooding in Louisville, the yellow fever epidemic, flooding in India, a hurricane in Belize. Continuing in this spirit, the SCN Disaster Relief Program involves volunteers to offer spiritual and physical support to persons experiencing a disaster. We respond in the same spirit of Vincent de Paul with reverence for each person and witness to God’s presence in the midst of adversity. The Disaster Relief Program provides an opportunity to put faith into action.
