Smiling Faces, Helping Hands
By Madeleine Wilmsen
The Little Sisters were blessed with some eager helpers this week. Sr. Maria Francis, the “begging sister” here at St. Mary’s Home, visited both Sacred Heart Catholic School in Melrose Park and Marist High School in Chicago, where she was greeted by some smiling students ready to help.
They had spent the last few weeks collecting toiletry items for the Residents, including facial tissues, shampoo, body wash, and other necessities. With the holiday season upon us, we consider our blessings and are especially grateful to those who are more than generous with their giving.
