The Sisters for the Relief of AIDS will minister exclusively to AIDS patients, working to make their lives more dignified
in the face of social ostracization and death.
The sisters' habit will be black with short black capelet. Their veil will be a black bonnet, with a large, red
silk border which crosses over the heart--to look like a giant AIDS awareness ribbon. The red silk border will be held
in place over the heart by a St. Benedict Medal Crucifix. In clinical areas, white will be worn. The
veil will be as described above, only the bonnet will be white.
The community may be bi-form, yet adherents to the Mass in the Extraordinary Form, and will make liberal use of the Divine
Mercy chaplet and prayers. Great emphasis will be placed on purity of life and intention.
