Wish List


Our donors have always been incredibly generous in their gifts to the Sisters. Please consider helping us with some very practical needs that are on our wish list.


Benches

2 needed | cost: $1,200 each

Benches add beauty to our campus and provide places for rest, prayer, reflection, and socialization.


Garden Stones

50 needed | cost: $500 medium size; $1,000 large size

Honor or remember a loved one with a beautiful garden stone while supporting our permaculture site and our sustainability efforts. Stones can be engraved with your short message.


Aerator & Windmill for Pond

1 needed | cost: $1,800

The Nature Area on campus, which includes a pond, is a wonderful place for Sisters and guests to visit to reflect, pray, view wildlife, and to simply enjoy the outdoors. The retention pond needs an aerator to oxygenate the water and promote healthy aquatic life. The windmill would provide a sustainable method of powering the aerator.

DLC Beauty Salon Renovations

Help us to refurbish our dated campus beauty salon, where 250-plus Sisters living on campus receive care.


Item   Quantity Needed   Cost 
Shampoo Sinks  3    each $4,750 
Roll Away Stand Dryer   1 0  $393 
Stationary Dryer  1 0  $592 
Access Styling Chair 
 2 1    each $699 
Salon Station with Mirror     3 1    each $2,058 


Golf Cart

1 needed | cost: $7,500

Our campus spans 113 acres. With more than 250 Sisters living on campus, it is often necessary to find ways to transport our Sisters to the cemetery for burials, to the Permaculture area for gardening, to the Weber Retreat & Conference Center for programs, and to our neighboring Siena Heights University for presentations and theater performances. The median age of our Sisters is 81 years old and safety is a key concern. Our current golf cart is 25 years old and has two seats facing forward and two seats facing backward. The two backward-facing seats are rarely used because our senior Sisters simply do not feel safe sitting there. A new  golf cart would allow our Sisters to travel around our campus safely.
