Sunday, May 3 was the day chosen for the Association Jeanne Jugan members to renew their promises. They do this each year. The members gathered for the Eucharistic celebration in which they took an active part, and after Communion came up in front of the altar to renew their commitment. After Mass they joined the Little Sisters for dinner in the auditorium.
This day was also chosen to crown the statue of the Blessed Mother. Before the final blessing, grandchildren of Manuel Ruiz, one of our Residents, proudly processed with their grandfather to the statue of Our Lady of Fatima at the foot of the sanctuary. The young people are no strangers to Queen of Peace. Not only is their grandfather a Resident, but their parents sing in the Friends in Christ choir who serve as music ministers for Sunday Mass once a month.
