The Little Sisters of the Poor, who have been welcoming aged poor persons and sharing their lives with them within our Archdiocese for over 140 years, will be visiting our parish Saturday, August 22 and Sunday, August 23 to speak of their mission within the Church, and to ask our help. Their Home, in North St. Louis, currently serves 115 needy elderly persons who are loved and cared for until death, so that they live in security and dignity.
The heart of their mission is simply to provide a “Home”, so that those elderly with whom the sisters joyfully share their lives, realize how much God loves them and wants them to be with Him forever in heaven. Throughout their history, the Little Sisters have depended on the collaboration of the laity to enable them to support their Residents and live their vocation. The Sisters will have envelopes in the pews and will briefly speak at Mass to ask your support. Please make checks payable to the Little Sisters of the Poor.
