About Instruments of Hope

Instruments of Hope is the nonprofit responsible for the planning, fundraising and upkeep of the 11-acre St. Francis of Assisi Sculpture Garden pathway. The land is owned by the Dominican Sisters at Marywood, and IOH has a contractual agreement with them because the pathway is a hand-in-glove fit with the sisters’ values of art, ecology and prayer. Throughout the year, IOH sponsors a Living Nativity, Blessing of the Animals, International Day of Peace and planting commemorative flowers in conjunction with area hospices.
