Sisters, Servants of Mary

The sisters of the Sister Servants of Mary Convent in the Bronx selflessly offer end of life nursing care and family caregiver relief free of charge regardless of religious affiliation.

The good sisters have been contending with rains pouring in through the leaky roof of their convent on Country Club Road. They need about $1 million to repair the roof, cracked walls and failing masonry. They have raised about $600,000 since their fund-raising efforts started last year. Some repairs are already underway. Construction crews have put on a temporary roof, begun repairing a wall in the back of the convent and worked on the parapet. The sisters, however, are hoping to raise enough money for the needed repairs to the convent’s interior, which will include electrical work and extensive painting of its many cracked walls.

The Rotary Club of the Bronx has given grant money for the restoration of the convent.
