Help Sr. Lucia’s 100th Birthday, 3-28-07
On March 28th, the Covent of Coimbra, Portugal will be celebrating the one hundred years anniversary of Sister Lúcia's birthday. Lucia lived in this Convent from 1948 and died there in 2005. It was her home for almost 58 years.

as they hope. I know that the amount of

donations from outsiders but this is an exceptional case because it is to honor

Make checks out to “Carmelo De Santa Teresa” and pray for the nuns there. I know of some of them who have great problems right now and have suffered greatly since Lucia died. These are (in my opinion) the best of the Church because of the great example of Sister Lucia. At lease here you can be absolutely sure that God will be pleased with your donation and sacrifice and that the nuns there will be praying for you.
