The sisters of Immaculate Heart of Mary and Saint Michael Archangel are active in music, studying Gregorian chant, singing at the Cathedral on special occasions, and of course using music as part of their formation of children. Three sisters are now studying violin (sharing a borrowed violin), and several would like to learn recorder (“flauta doce” in Portuguese).
Good quality student instruments can be had from brands like Yamaha for $500 US (violins) and $30-50 US (recorders). A one time donation of about $2000 would be enough for the sisters to upgrade their music program with decent instruments.
Can you help? Donations of any size most thankfully accepted! Please keep the sisters in your prayers!!
