Mother Helena Grants

For Holy Union Sisters Ministries

In 2003 the Holy Union Sisters in the United States created the Mother Helena Fund to help meet the ministry needs in some under-funded ministries. The Fund was named to honor Mother Helena, our Founding Mother, who in 1886 led the first group of Holy Union Sisters from Europe to the United States. As an immigrant herself, she truly understood the challenges that newcomers faced day after day. Mother Helena encouraged our early Sisters to respond to the needs of immigrant families and of the poor in all the schools and neighborhoods in which our Sisters served.

Our heritage is to continue her work of compassion and outreach to people in need in our own time through the resources of the Mother Helena Fund.
