Saint by Sarah Jane Exclusive
Catholic Charities Wichita is excited to collaborate with Saint by Sarah Jane to provide an exclusive “Faithful Servant Collection” with all proceeds benefiting the Faithful Servant Fund. The collection will feature one or two new charms each year inspired by Catholic Charities, our ministries and those we serve.
The bracelet and charms can be purchased seperately or together. Learn more about each charm below.
What is the Faithful Servant Fund?
In the fall of 2019, Catholic Charities introduced the Faithful Servant Fund to focus our ongoing efforts to raise dollars to support the work of all ministries.
Contributions to the Faithful Servant Fund give Catholic Charities the greatest flexibility to address the most urgent needs within our ministries and the Diocese of Wichita, whether that be helping the hungry, homeless, poor, lonely or abused.
Support Catholic Charities
All proceeds from the Saint by Sarah Jane Faithful Servant Collection will benefit the Faithful Servant Fund at Catholic Charities. Purchase your charm bracelet today for $395 to lend your support; $200 is tax deductible.
Saint by Sarah Jane Bracelet Order
St. Rita of Cascia
Saint of the Rose and patroness of impossible causes and domestic violence
The St. Rita charm honors all those we have and will serve through outreach programs and the shelter at Harbor House Domestic Violence Shelter.
St. Rita of Cascia became an Augustinian nun at the age of 36. Her prayers, and often impossible requests, resulted in many miracles.
Known as Saint of the Rose, the granting of her impossible prayer requests lead her to become patroness of impossible causes, as well as abused wives and heartbroken women.
Her feast day is celebrated May 22, the same date on which she died in 1457.
St. Anthony of Padua
Patron Saint of Lost Things
The St. Anthony charm honors all families who have been served through St. Anthony Family Shelter and its outreach programs.
Declared a doctor of the church, St. Anthony was known to be an eloquent speaker and teacher. A book of psalms he made to teach was stolen by a young novice who left the Franciscan hermitage. St. Anthony prayed for its recovery. The thief returned the book and to the order as well. He is typically depicted with a book.
St. Anthony is the patron of lost things and is credited around the world with many miracles involving lost people, lost things and lost spiritual goods.
His feast day is celebrated June 13th, the same date as his death in 1231. He was canonized less than one year after his death at the age of 36.
St. Margaret of Castello
Patron Saint of those with disabilities and physical challenges
The St. Margaret charm honors program participants who are reaching for their highest potential at Adult Day Services.
St. Margaret bravely faced life with several disabilities. She was born in Florence, Italy, in 1287, blind and with a severe curvature of the spine. One leg was noticeably shorter than the other, and one arm malformed. At first, her parents kept her hidden away and claimed she had died. Then, when she was just six years old, they abandoned her at the shrine of Castello when their prayer for a miracle went unanswered.
Margaret was embraced by the residents of Castello and was adopted by loving parents. She joined the Third Order of St. Dominic at age 15.
In spite of her physical difficulties, Margaret visited prisoners, helped the sick and comforted those who were suffering. She saw in their sufferings the image of the suffering Christ. She regarded her own disabilities as a means to unite her pain with the pain Christ endured on the cross.
St. Margaret’s feast day is April 13, the same day that the renovated Adult Day Services campus opened its doors.
