The Poor Clare GALA 2015 held on the 8th of August 2015 at the Sullivan Center of Creighton Prep; was the 6th of the dinner and auction events of the Poor Clare Sisters with the goal of raising funds for the completion of the new monastery. Through the generous efforts of the GALA Team, the honorary chairs, and the active participation of the benefactors and friends who attended, the successful event brought forth $120,000.00.
These 6 annual events contributed greatly to bring the Poor Clare Sisters to their much needed new home. In thankfulness and continued trust in God’s providence, Sister Theresina Santiago’s proposal that the GALA 2015 marks the last of such big events was unanimously approved by the members of the Advisory Council at the meeting on August 21, 2015. The Advisory Council is in the process of planning smaller events and other means to help in the maintenance and servicing of the loan incurred for the completion of the building project. All these will continue the objectives of “Giving a Legacy for All” through the life and mission of the Poor Clare Sisters of Omaha. It will foster their service to embrace the Church and the World in prayer!
