Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVM)
The Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is a community of Catholic women religious who, in response to a personal call from God, have chosen a vowed life of prayer, ministry and community. In response to this call, BVMs express their mission in service to God's people through our core values of freedom, education, charity and justice.
Having a vehicle to take me and other sisters to events is a real treat. I would not be able take part in all of the special events that are planned for us without the accessible vehicle. I try to attend as many things as I can. -Sister Jane Haslwanter, BVM
The purchase of a new van will enable us to take more sisters on outings and accommodate those who need to travel via wheelchair. It will provide space for supplies such as picnic gear and coolers, and have a 6% grade ramp, making it less fearful for the sisters. -Mount Carmel Administrator Sarah Rentz
