On February 9, Sisters, employees, volunteers, and Association Jeanne Jugan members assembled together in the Chapel to prayerfully reflect on their individual contributions to the Home, its Residents, and the Mission of St. Jeanne Jugan.
Father John Corey officiated the prayer service which began with song followed by Luke 10:30-37, the Gospel of the Good Samaritan.
After the readings, a representative from each department was called forward with a symbol of their work and service to the Home. Twelve departments in all participated: Activity/Arts and Crafts, Administration, Association Jeanne Jugan, Collecting, Employee Roster, Housekeeping, Kitchen, Laundry, Maintenance, Nursing, Volunteers, Sisters. Father anointed with oil the hands of each participant and the Caregivers Blessing was recited together.
Each member of our community left the Chapel feeling refreshed, renewed, and strengthened to continue their good works.
