Autumn Gala


Autumn Gala of Solidarity –

A St. Francis Day Celebration of Hope


Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health of our guests and Sisters, our 16th annual Autumn Gala scheduled for October 4, 2020 was canceled due to the ongoing pandemic. During this year of doing things differently, we invite you to join us for a virtual Autumn Gala of Solidarity on the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi where we will celebrate and give thanks to God for your presence on our journey, which gives us hope.


 Message from Sister Joanne Brazinski with Special  St. Francis Day Blessing from our Sisters 

(Available October 4, 2020)


Your Generosity Will Be Doubled

The faithful generosity of our friends and benefactors continues to profoundly bless our Sisters and those we serve. Please know, as with past Autumn Galas, all donations received from our virtual Gala go to support our ministries and outreach, as well as the care of our senior Sisters. During this difficult time for so many, Providence has made it possible for this year’s Gala to make a double impact. Each donation we receive for our needs will be matched by an anonymous donor and given to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and Catholic Relief Services to help persons experiencing poverty and other hardships during the COVID-19 pandemic.
