The Residents were so excited today to have students from Notre Dame Academy come to their Home for a retreat day. The students, all girls, enjoyed their time here learning about the Little Sisters and getting to spend some quality time with the Residents.
This is third year in a row that their instructor Mr. Scott Kay has brought his scripture class of students to the Little Sisters. He said, he just “loves to bring the girls here to our Home, because he can tell it means a lot to the Residents”
The girls had a tour of the home and got to watch a video about St. Jeanne Jugan and the founding of the Little Sisters. Sr. Rosario Flor gave a moving talk to the girls about the Little Sisters, and encouraged them to be open to a religious vocation in their lives.
The students ended their retreat by sharing lunch with some of our Residents and then helping to take down the St. Valentine Day decorations in our Auditorium. The girls really brought a lot of smiles and happiness to the Residents, as these photos will attest.
