A brief history of Palm Springs Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence

The Palm Springs Chapter or House received their Mission Status from the Motherhouse, San Francisco Sisters, Inc. in 2006, and was granted their exequatur in April 2007 thus becoming an independent, fully professed house.  Since our inception, The Palm Springs Sisters have donated over $125,000.00 to local organizations. That does not include the money we raise directly for other organizations when they ask us to be part of their event!

They have helped raise funds for The L-Fund, for Prostate Cancer Awareness, Breast Cancer and Working Wonders, to name just a few.

The Palm Springs Sisters also continue to collect school supplies for local families and schools in need, toys and holiday gifts so that Coachella Valley families can have gifts for the winter holidays, food for local food banks, plus clothing, sweaters and coats that go to our local homeless in the winter.
