Mullen Home Gardens
The grounds of Mullen Home are cared for diligently by two Residents and a community volunteer with a green thumb.
Joe dedicates his mornings to the details and adoration for the Virgin Mother in the grotto. His diligence is evident in all the flowers (roses, honey suckle, irises and more) and appreciated by the Little Sisters, Residents, Staff, and visitors. The front entrance is adorned by more roses, butterfly bushes, marigolds, succulents, daffodils, echinacea, tulips, and lilies. These have been tended to by Tim and a faithful community volunteer Lynn.
Walking along these beautiful 10 acres is incredibly peaceful and a lovely way to dedicate a few moments in prayer or meditation. The Stations of the Cross have potted flowers set before them prepared by the preschool children from St. Vincent de Paul school. We are blessed with this greenery and all the trees and gardens that invite so much color and life. It’s beautiful to see the bees dancing around and even a butterfly or dragonfly dance by on a whim. Thank you to Joe, Tim, and Lynn for their dedication to Mullen Home’s beautiful botanical needs: the grotto garden, the trees, the Stations of the Cross, the entrance gardens, and so much more.
For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.
