Second Collection for Little Sisters of the Poor
On the weekend of January 28-29, the Little Sisters of the Poor will visit St. Catherine of Siena-St. Lucy and St. Giles Parish to share their vocation of hospitality to the elderly. St. Mary’s Home in Chicago is one of 167 Homes for the elderly poor operated by the Little Sisters in 31 countries around the world.
Acute and considerable continues to be their need for financial support. Virtually all of the current Residents of St. Mary’s Home qualify for Medicaid, and a few receive meager pensions. But these modest funds cover, at best, about half of the annual expenses. The Little Sisters have ministered to thousands of elders in Chicago for 145 years. Your support will enable them to continue their mission of caring for the neediest seniors of every race and religion in a spirit of reverence and of humble service. God bless you!
