We are so grateful to the following sponsors of the Collaborative’s 15th Anniversary Celebration!

Collaborator Sponsor

The Sisters of the Humility of Mary is a community of women religious founded in France in 1854 whose Motherhouse, Villa Maria Community Center, has been located in Villa Maria, Pa. since 1864. Their mission is to share in Jesus’ mission of bringing more abundant life to God’s people, especially to those who are poor. Since their earliest beginnings, with vision, courage and generosity, the sisters have endeavored to address the signs of the times and the needs of those around them. They have channeled these efforts through education, health care, parish ministry, various pastoral ministries including retreats and spiritual direction, housing, foreign mission work, advocacy, outreach, and the ministry of prayer.
