The 5th grade class from St. Mary’s School recently visited our home and presented Sister Anthony with knitted scarves that they made for us to sell in our gift shop. The class learned how to knit, especially for this project. They were very proud to know that the proceeds from our gift shop go to help care for the Residents in one of our mission home in Tunja, Colombia. All of our homes are assigned a “Mission Home,” which denotes a home that is in particular need of assistance in order to continue their care of the elderly poor.
The students visited the Residents during the lunch hour and gave out Easter cards that they made for each of them. The Residents thoroughly enjoyed their young visitors. We are thankful to their teacher, who is the daughter-in-aw of our Resident, Charlotte Mayfield.
