The Sunday Assembly community at Holy Wisdom Monastery has been collecting and bundling donations for the Vera Court Neighborhood Center since 2007. This is an important aspect of living out the justice portion of the sisters’ mission, supporting a neighborhood community center on Madison’s north side.
Patrick Schrank, the fund and program development director at VCNC writes: “Holy Wisdom Sunday Assembly Members: Thank you again for your continued support of Vera Court Neighborhood Center. This summer we have been able to serve more than 85 children and teens in our summer camps. Thank you for your contributions which make our work possible. We look forward to our visit this fall [after worship on September 22] and of course welcome all to stop by our center for a tour anytime – just call 608-246-8372 to set up.”
So far in 2013, the Benedictine Life Foundation $2,028 to support VCNC, and they tell us that we are one of their largest supporters for their work. Collections are taken the third Sunday of each month at Sunday Assembly, or you can send a check to the Benedictine Life Foundation, 4200 County Road M, Middleton WI 53562, with “Vera Court” in the memo or make a donation online.
