As you know the Little Sisters of the Poor welcome into their Homes the aged who need financial support and who are in need of loving care. With your constant generosity we are able to fulfil our mission. The collecting in the Supermarkets and in the Churches brings us into contact with many people who are pleased to share in our work by giving to us what they can afford.
Recently a gentlemen in Old Kent Road in London gave us fresh fish for a meal for the whole House. We see the hand of God in all these gestures which recall to us the loving care that our Patron, Saint Joseph had for Jesus and Mary.
We are happy to welcome into our Homes and to care for more poor old people. These people do not necessarily receive financial help from the Social Services. We need your financial support to welcome more poor and to respond to all their needs. This Lenten Season can be a start for many to give generously and join the Sisters to be part of the big family of the Little Sisters of the Poor.
In every Home of the Province, for the Feast Day of St Joseph, the 19th March a Mass of thanksgiving will be celebrated for all our benefactors, living and deceased. You are warmly invited to come to one of the Homes and to participate at the Celebration of the Mass.
We assure you of our grateful prayers and for your families.
