In 2008, the U.S. Province decided to embark upon a new journey to “widen the tent” in hopes that we could increase people’s awareness of who the Helpers are and what we do. Sister Jean Kielty gathered an editorial staff to launch the publication Voices of Hope and the team has been covering timely issues that impact all of us, spanning location, culture and socioeconomic status.

Voices of Hope aims to address the importance of faith and the underlying humanity that connects us all. By including contributors from all over the world and from all walks of life, Voices of Hope has truly succeeded in widening the tent and increasing the Helpers’ network of friends and supporters. With a lean editorial staff and the generosity of both contributors and our audience, we are able to publish this bi-annual booklet free of cost to our readers.

Please page through our library of issues dating back to the Winter of 2009. We appreciate you taking the time to visit with us and please email us at if you’d like to join our mailing list, suggest topics for future issues or share your thoughts as a contributing author.

Thank you!

The Society of Helpers and the Voices of Hope Editorial Staff
