About the Sisters of St. Francis Auxiliary

One of the dictionary’s definitions of “auxiliary” is providing help. Such is the role of the Sisters’ Auxiliary, an organization of enthusiastic women whose main purpose is to see to the joy and comfort of the Sisters.

First formed in 1985, the Auxiliary has a long history of financial support for the community, having provided for numerous needs of our Sisters, most recently cars and bathroom renovations. The hard-working board members often visit our senior Sisters in Pittsburgh and support larger fundraisers, like our Autumn Gala. They also surprise our Sisters in the USA with special treats for holidays and other occasions.

For more information about joining this Auxiliary or participating in any of their activities, please contact Sister Mary Ann Lostoski at (412) 477-4321 or
