Water, Water Everywhere!

A Special Appeal

Please help Father Tom and our ministries by making a special gift to offset the $30,000 cost of our water crisis.

A little leak leaves a big mess.

What you’re seeing is a decades-old water pipe buried beneath our island -- one of several essential arteries responsible for delivering fresh, clean water to the retreatants, residents and visitors to Enders Island each year.

Unbeknownst to us, the pipe sprang a leak, consuming a million gallons of water in a month. The cost to stanch the flow has been steep: $16,000 for the water bill, and another $14,000 in unplanned repairs!

I write to you today with a special appeal for help in meeting these unplanned expenses, as you have done so generously in the past.

Please help me and our ministries by making a special gift to offset the $30,000 cost of our water crisis.

I am truly grateful for your support. Your gifts of prayer and financial support strengthen our ministries every day.


Your gift in any amount will make a big difference as we do our best to lighten spirits and bring hope to our brothers and sisters in need. Thank you for all your support. Please pray for us daily as we pray for you, too. 

In faith and hope,

Fr. Tom Hoar, SSE
President, St. Edmund's Retreat, Inc.
