Why Your Donations Are So Important

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Home (Home) was established by the Hawthorne Dominicans  for the care of incurable cancer patients without discrimination as to race, creed or national origin. The Sisters of OLPH hope that their patients will feel welcome in an atmosphere of peace and warmth — where love, understanding and compassion prevail.  Our Lady of Perpetual Help Home accepts only patients with a diagnosis of incurable or terminal cancer who are unable to pay for adequate nursing care elsewhere.  

The Home is supported entirely by the generosity of a sympathetic public. No remuneration is accepted from the patients or their families.  The Our Lady of Perpetual help Home Auxiliary (OLPHA) sole purpose is to raise funds for the Home.  We deeply appreciate the generosity of donors who ensure we’re able to provide this care.

We couldn’t do it without you. Thanks for all you do to support our mission.

Our Prayer for the Home

Heavenly Father 

You know our needs 
before We even speak them
So it is with confidence
That we ask your blessing
Upon the sisters, nurses
Nurse assistants, and workers at  Our Lady of Perpetual Help Home.

Continue to stir the hearts 
Of dedicated men and women
To serve you at the Home
As nuns and nurses assistants
Help them and all the workers
To find joy and peace
In cheerfully and devotedly
Taking care of the Patients.

Grant them all
The grace and perseverence
To work with the sick and the dying.
We ask this in the name of
Your Son,
Our Lord,
Jesus Christ.
