September 22-26 were grace-filled days for the USA! We were happy to welcome among us Pope Francis! Little Sisters took part in the Vesper Service at St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the Mass at Madison Square Garden. Two Little Sisters in the community were fortunate to be in Washington for the Holy Father’s surprise visit to our Home there!
Two Residents: Mary Frances Caruba and Michael Severino were among those present at Kennedy Airport to greet Pope Francis when he descended from the plane on September 24. Accompanying them were Sr. Sheila Ann Thérèse, Sr. Alice Regina and Luis Moran, our Housekeeping Supervisor. Something to note is that Mary Frances celebrated her 100th birthday that day! Can you imagine celebrating your 100th birthday with the Pope! She received a lovely rosary the Holy Father. The photos say everything!
