A Hidden Gem in Atlanta

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Cancer Home has been operating in Atlanta since 1939, yet many people do not know about the amazing work of the Dominican Sisters of Hawthorne.

This short video was produced and published by the Archdiocese of Atlanta.

It features our sisters at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Home. "Our Home in the South", as we like to call it, has been a witness to God's love and mercy since 1939.
