Our home said goodbye to three of our Sisters who have been reassigned to other homes.
On the afternoon of April 19, Residents, Sisters and Staff gathered in our auditorium for a final celebration. Residents prepared a play that included songs for each Sister, small gifts for each, and light refreshments of fruit, cheeses, punch, etc. A liturgy for all three Sisters had been celebrated the week before.
Mother Chantal will be moving to Louisville as Mother Superior, Sister Maria Ann, our director of nursing, will be superior at the Little Sisters’ home in Brazzaville, the Congo, and Sister Isabella will be returning to her native Korea to work in a home there.
Though everyone was sad to see them leave us, we also rejoiced for the years of service they gave our Residents and for the challenges that await each of them in their new assignments in ministry.
