Merry Christmas, Residents!
“Dear young people, each one of these elderly people is your grandparent! Do not leave them by themselves.”
Pope Francis has made a conscious effort during these COVID times to share how important our Elderly are to our world. Many of our young volunteers and donors have taken this to heart and have reached out, expressing their desires to serve and help our Residents through these difficult times. This past holiday season, we received beautifully written letters, signs, Christmas cards, and even homemade blankets for our Residents from many young donors. It was such a joy to witness how much pleasure both the Residents and young received from this mutual effort to bring joy to others. What a beautiful gift to see all of the ways that the young faithful are participating in the life of the church by loving the Elderly.
