Little Sisters of the Poor

Each year, the Little Sisters of the Poor will visit our Parish to share their vocation of hospitality to the elderly.
In our neighborhood at 2325 N. Lakewood, St. Mary’s Home in Chicago is one of 167 Homes for the elderly poor operated by the Little Sisters in 31 countries around the world.
Their need for financial support continues to be acute and considerable. Virtually all of the current Residents of St. Mary’s Home qualify for Medicaid, and a few receive meager pensions. But these modest funds cover, at best, about half of the annual expenses. The Little Sisters have ministered to thousands of elders in Chicago for 145 years. Your support will enable them to continue their mission of caring for the neediest seniors of every race and religion in a spirit of reverence and of humble service. God bless you!
