Our Mission

SOAR! brings together people of all religious denominations across America whose lives have been touched by the unparalleled contribution Catholic sisters, brothers and priests have made to our families, our communities and our nation. Millions of us have been educated, cared for, comforted and prayed for by women and men religious. Our former educators and caregivers now need our help to ensure that they are able to live their "golden years" with the same dignity and safety we want for ourselves and our families. Learn More
