Our Residents are making monthly pilgrimages to various area shrines throughout the St. Louis archdiocese. These have been designated by Archbishop Robert Carlson as sites for the faithful to visit and gain a plenary indulgence as part of this Year of Faith.
Here are depicted some of our Residents who visited the old St. Ferdinand Shrine in north county in April with our activities department and Father Jim Beegan, the Home’s chaplain.
Our Residents were able to tour the Shrine, and celebrate Mass in the shrine’s chapel. Mary Hafner especially enjoyed herself, as the picture shows her in front of the school entrance where she attended as a child.
