When I entered the cloister I thought I knew that I would never step on an airplane again. And so I learned that you can donate frequent flyer miles! I donated mine to the Sisters of Life who use them for sisters, women in troubled pregnancies, and vocational needs.
While I still have no flying in my personal future, we do have a need for some frequent flyer miles! We have recently received a few inquiries from women who are not within driving distance of the monastery and cannot afford multiple trips to visit. (Generally a woman who in interested will visit at least 3 times before any application is made)
There are two main ways frequent flyer miles can be donated:
- Send us your name and about how many trips you are thinking of donating. We would then send you the name and need of the woman concerned and ask that you make the arrangements.
- Send us your name and account information for the airline concerned, indicating how many miles you would like to donate. We will then use this information to make arrangements through your account and notify you when we plan to do so.
Our needs at present concern only 1 or 2 women but we would like to create a network through which we can help these women to take those first steps in discernment. Thank you and God bless you!
