IT IS A WORK
supported by the generosity of a sympathetic public. No remuneration is accepted from the patients or their families. Our homes are free provided the requirements are met. The sisters place their trust in the loving providence of God and that trust has never failed. Donations large and small from groups and individuals have provided the necessary funds from the very beginning.
IT IS THE HOPE
of the Sisters that their patients will feel welcome in an atmosphere of peace and warmth, where love, understanding and compassion prevail.
In the words of Mother Alphonsa: " We must make our guests as comfortable and happy as if their own people had kept them and put them into the very best bedroom. We must love them".
IT IS A HOME
established by the Hawthorne Dominicans for the care of incurable cancer patients without discrimination as to race, creed, or national origin. Seldom the destitute of Mother Alphonsa's day, they nevertheless are sufferers whose resources have been exhausted and who no longer have sufficient funds to provide for adequate nursing care.
"One soul is as fair and precious as another; there is no exception"
Mother Mary Alphonsa
