2024 Beauty of the Spirit June 13, 2024

Thanks for Your Generosity!

Thanks to the generosity of our loyal supporters, this year’s Beauty of the Spirit Luncheon raised more than $90,000 – of which approximately half will go towards the renovation of the 3rd and 4th floors of the Motherhouse. On Thursday, June 13th, over 350 guests enjoyed a day filled with true spirit, love, and community all while taking chances on over 95 basket raffles, special raffle prizes, a 50/50, a wine raffle, mystery gifts, and so much more!

We have heard from so many attendees about how much they enjoyed the event as well as the “Changing Habits” exhibit on display during the luncheon that showcased the evolution of the Sisters of St. Dominic’s habits throughout the years and recognition of Alberta Weisberg as the co-designer of the first Modified Habit.
