The Campaign complements our Annual Benefit Dinner (May 10, 2018) with a goal to raise support and awareness of our mission to provide integrated holistic treatment for Religious and Clergy. All proceeds will help us in assisting those who lack sufficient resources so that no one will be denied services.
Southdown is a place dedicated to preventative and restorative care for Clergy and Vowed Religious. People in our communities face challenges and stressors that become an integral part of the ministry Clergy and Religious women and men provide. These committed men and women are increasingly being asked to provide more services with fewer supports and less time. In addition, their resources, both Diocesan and Congregational, are declining. When ministers need respite and a place to heal, Southdown provides a secure and supportive environment for them. Healers need healing themselves if they are to continue their calling in our time of need. When our ministers are healthy, they are filled with a deep inner joy and compassion that spills over to each of us and benefits the universal Church. These strong and healthy ministers give us hope and encouragement as we face our own personal trials.
