Saints & Angels

The Eureka Sisters work hard to support Humboldt County in reaching a more equitable, just, and queer future! We have partnered with various organizations within our community to fundraise and organize, and we strive to highlight the amazing work that others are doing.

One of the ways that we highlight the work of others, is through bestowing Sainthood and Angeldom upon outstanding individuals within our community who ensure that the work we do is possible.

Saints and Angels are not members of the Abbey. They are very special people in our community who deserve recognition for their contributions to the community or the Sisters. Any Fully Professed Member may nominate a person for Sainthood or Angel status.


Any person in the community whose life and accomplishments are exemplary and in keeping with the Abbey’s philosophy and mission of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Saints exhibit these characteristics:

  • They contribute unselfishly to the betterment of the community

  • They foster an understanding & acceptance of the beautiful diversity in us all

  • They openly embrace the queer community as a valued part of our society


There are those who go out of their way to help us with events, logistics, information, and services. They are our Angels. Any person in the community who has made a major contribution directly to benefit the Abbey. Their contributions may be in their volunteer time, materials, or financial donations

High Holy Powers! Blessed Saints.
