Help Us Build

We Are Growing!
We welcome your generous participation in our "Help Us Build" project as we build a larger chapel and an addition to our formation house at our Motherhouse due to our growing Community.

To learn about this exciting project, we invite you to read Mother Shaun Vergauwen's letter to friends of the Community. If you are interested in contributing a special memorial in honor of a loved one, please call us at 203-600-8911 to discuss options.

Click the Donate button to donate online using your credit card. You do not need an account with PayPal to use your credit card for your donation.

We need a significant amount of funds, but no donation is too small. We are grateful for everyone's help as we build for a hopeful future!


Chapel Blueprint

The above blueprint and sketch show the plans for the new chapel connected to the existing Paul VI Center. The chapel building includes a meeting room adjacent to the chapel which can be used for overflow space when needed. Below is the architect's rendition of landscape and partial parking plans for the chapel.

Chapel Landscape Plan

We are building an addition to our formation house, the John Lateran Center on Allen Avenue in Meriden. The number of new Sisters entering the Community makes it imperative that we make room for them! The addition will include 12 bedrooms, a large dining room, study areas, an all-purpose space, a summer kitchen and a reconfiguration of the current kitchen and dining area.


We are hopeful for the future and will be grateful for any donation you can give. Your support of this project helps us build toward the future of religious life in the Church. To donate to Help Us Build, please click on the Donate button above.
