Sisters of Charity, Baltic, CT
The senior residents of the Sisters of Charity enjoyed a “Spring Fling Celebration,” thanks to our Central Connecticut chapter. These retired sisters have dedicated their lives to serving others as nurses and teachers and have all lived a life of poverty. The sisters enjoyed a nostalgic singalong led by one of the nuns there. Following the singalong, the sisters did a service project, putting together 100 “surprise packages” for the Saint Vincent De Paul Place soup kitchen in Norwich. Refreshments were shared by all followed by a flower making craft project to beautify the sisters’ living space. In addition, they each received a gift bag with a prayer box, an olive wood pocket cross, a lap blanket, and candy. Finally, there was a photo booth where the sisters were able to take a “selfie with Pope Francis!” The photos were printed out and given to the sisters in a special Pope Francis frame.
