2012 Appreciation Report of Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities Rooted in the Gospel we are sisters to all, serving with reverence, justice and compassion. Dear Friend, Peace and all good! 2012 was a remarkable year for our congregation on so many levels. The canonization of Mother Marianne Cope, the first Franciscan saint in U.S. history, was a wonderful gift to our entire congregation. When the Holy Father announced Mother Marianne’s canonization in December 2011, I don’t think any of us imagined the immediate or long term impact this event would have on our lives as Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities. With you, our faithful friends and donors, we shared in the preparation and the celebration of St. Marianne’s canonization and, in the process, inspired countless thousands in need of guidance, prayers and support to journey with us! There are not words to express the gratitude we share as a community for all who have participated in this labor of love: sisters, Franciscan Associates, lay staff, volunteers, friends, donors, pilgrims, and both the Dioceses of Honolulu, Hawaii and Syracuse, N.Y. Our congregation also experienced a leadership team transition. Through the process of discernment and asking for the wisdom and guidance of the Holy Spirit, delegates at our General Chapter in July 2012 elected a new leadership team for the next four years. As “servants to all” our six person leadership team, consisting of gifted and talented sisters representing all of our former regions, have come together to help lead our congregation into the future. This year is already shaping up to be another exceptional year with the 130th anniversary of our sisters’ presence in Hawaii, the development of a new residence for our sisters in central New York, the 175th anniversary of the birth of St. Marianne, and congregation-wide conversations about mission, vision, and legacy that will sustain us for decades to come. Of course, the legacy of our community is manifest through you and through all of the ways in which you choose to journey with us. For all that you do to help to reflect, extend and sustain our “legacy of love” we thank you. Know that our thoughts and our prayers are with you always. Blessings, and may St. Marianne pray for us, Sister Roberta Smith, OSF General Minister 2012 rEPORT of APPRECIATION 1 Appreciation Report of T hank Y ou for E xtending O ur L egacy of L ove .

Planning, patience, and inspired generosity. In a wonderful outpouring of support, more than 125 friends stepped forward — providing critical funds to help defray the cost of travel to this historic event. Gifts of all sizes paved the way, with the full cost of 20 sisters’ travel sponsored by a number of lead donors. The decision to sponsor sisters was an easy one for Mr. John Lorz, of Bay Village, Ohio. “I love them!” he says enthusiastically. “The sisters do so much good for so many. It’s an honor to be able to do this for them.” A gift from John and his wife Nancy sponsored Sister Marie Joette Ebert and Sister Geraldine DeLuca. “I was thrilled to learn that John was sponsoring us to attend the canonization,” said Sister Geraldine. “I had never been to Rome or Assisi, and had settled on the notion that I would not be able to go. His goodness and generosity mean so much. John will always be in my heart and prayers.” Mr. and Mrs. Robert Pollock, Jr. Mrs. Jane Seelman Mr. Paul Sweeney Yorktown Funeral Home Jeanne and Richard Allison Ms. Debra A.

Together they organized the food pantry program at Immaculate Conception Parish in Fayetteville, N.Y. and volunteered at Francis House, a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of St. Francis in Syracuse, N.Y. “When things were changing in my life, Sister Monica helped me discern my decision to join the sisters’ Franciscan Associate program,” says Betsy. As an associate, Betsy seized the opportunity to get to know as many of the sisters as possible. “I never cease to be inspired by the sisters’ energy, grace, and dedication to make this world a better place. I’m so blessed to have them in my life.” In honor and memory of the sisters who have touched her life, Betsy has generously included the sisters in her annual giving since 1998.

Currently she provides pastoral ministry for the deaf in eight western New York counties, interprets weekly Mass in Buffalo, counsels persons with multiple disabilities and teaches American Sign Language at Hilbert College in Hamburg, N.Y.

During the Depression, August J. “Gus” Galasso was a student at St. Mary’s High School in Lancaster, N.Y. Mother General Sister Priscilla Gross urged him to go to college, and was instrumental in helping him obtain a scholarship at St. Bonaventure University in St. Bonaventure, N.Y. Gus went on to become a very successful businessman, but never forgot the assistance and love he received from the Sisters of St. Francis. “I am who I am, because the sisters believed in me,” he once said. For years Gus made substantial contributions to our congregation through his August J. Galasso Foundation, and in October 2001, the year of Gus’ 90th birthday, the chapel at St. Mary of the Angels in Williamsville, N.Y. was named in his honor. Gus has since passed away, but our congregation still receives annuals gifts from the Galasso Foundation — a legacy that will live on and on for our sisters and those we serve. Now, it is we who owe Gus a debt of gratitude. Mr. and Mrs. Leonard J. Stevens Mr. Rudy Sumogit Mrs. Juliann Tinder Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Valentine Dr. Anna Wagner Robert J.

Each year, Sister Joanne Gangloff is extremely grateful for the volunteers who come to the Timau Mission in Kenya, Africa to help her care for many impoverished children and family members. These volunteers learn first-hand about the poverty and kindness that exists in Kenya. They come from all walks of life and backgrounds, and help in the classroom, the dispensary, run errands and provide compassion and hope for those most in need. Recently, Paula Appleton traveled from her home in Albuquerque, N.M. to volunteer with Sister Joanne. She traveled with her sister, Bonnie Reinhart, and both sponsor children there. “Paula’s presence here is a joy to the teachers, staff and children at our St. Elizabeth School,” says Sister Joanne. “We always say that Kenya is a contagious, incurable disease, and Paula’s surely caught it.” Richard and Beverly Burgundy Dr. and Mrs. Peter M.

In many ways, Dr. Paul DeMare has followed in the footsteps of his great aunt, St. Marianne Cope. Raised near Utica, N.Y., he studied medicine in Syracuse, N.Y. and “externed” at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Syracuse. After interning in Hawaii, he returned there permanently in 1975 to serve those in need. “I grew up knowing of my Aunt Barbara (Mother Marianne),” says Dr. DeMare, “but it wasn’t until my first trip to Kalaupapa that it set in ... she was a real person who did amazing things.” For more than 45 years, Paul has been a friend and a patron of the Sisters of St. Francis. He struck up wonderful friendships with among others, Sister Davilyn Ah Chick and the late Sister Mary Laurence Hanley. He travelled with our sisters to the beatification and canonization of St. Marianne and has been an advocate through the St. Francis Healthcare System in Honolulu, Hawaii. In an ultimate gesture of gratitude, he funded the travel of five sisters to the canonization. The DeMare family’s legacy of love for our sisters also extends to his oldest daughter, Pamela, who has accompanied her father on several trips to Honolulu and Kalaupapa, Hawaii; Syracuse and Rome, Italy to follow in the footsteps of Mother Marianne. “It’s kind of cool to have a saint in the family,” Paul reflects.

The patriarch in this case was the brother-in-law of Sister Lucy Sabatini, long-time director of the school. For the past 23 years, Walter’s love for our sisters and his role in supporting our congregation has grown exponentially. After 12 years on the board at Nazareth Nursery, he now serves on the board of Partners in Franciscan Ministries, the congregation’s sponsored ministry management arm. He also played an integral role on the congregational financial advisory board. “The sisters are such smart, dedicated women. It’s impossible not to admire and be inspired by them,” says Walter. “Sister Lucy was such an example for parents and their children alike, Catholic or non-catholic, wealthy or poor: she was the champion for all in need.” Walter attributes his own ease in transitioning into retirement to the sisters. “They make it easy to follow their example, spiritually, physically and emotionally. The only difference is they never retire!” Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Lindenmayer Mr. and Mrs. Mark Lalloo Mr. and Mrs. Eddie Lara Sr. Mr. and Mrs. David R. Lee Ms. Mary G.

For the late Anne Schano Burlett and a second Pennsylvania benefactor who wished to remain anonymous, the answer was revealed posthumously through their estate plans. Together, more than $5 million was bequeathed to the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities to be used for the care and ongoing operational support of our sisters. “Our congregation is blessed every day to be able to work with and minister to so many people that we get to know and whom we can call friends as they journey with us,” said Sister Roberta Smith, general minister. “Every gift to our community is special and important to us, and for two dear friends/benefactors to care for us so much to leave such significant legacy gifts, well it’s deeply touching.” These gifts will be used to support the mission and ministries of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities specifically including the care and operational support for our 98 sisters who continue to live and minister in western Pennsylvania.

Their relationship with the sisters has blossomed into so much more than just vendor and customer — it’s an extension of “family.” As a St. Clare Corporate Partner, Cura has also been a great supporter of the sisters through donations and event sponsorships. For Anita Dwyer, vice-president of operations, her love of the sisters began prior to her involvement with Cura. “I was taught by the Sisters of St. Francis in Millvale, and they were frequent guests at our home,” said Anita. “I especially remember them coming to prepare my Aunt Louise, who had Down syndrome, to receive her holy Communion and confirmation. The patience and love they showed for my aunt and our family is something I will never forget. She continued, “I have deepest respect and admiration for the sisters who ask for very little in return, yet give so much of themselves. It is my way of saying ‘thank you.’” The Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities gratefully acknowledge the following organizations for their heartfelt commitment to the St. Clare Corporate Partnership program: Cura Hospitality Fahs Construction Group Franciscan Companies Mr. and Mrs. Charles Zimmerman Ms. Laura Yelinek Mrs. Mary Ann Zalewski Paul T.
