Spring has sprung on the grounds of the Sisters of Charity Motherhouse. Many thanks to S. Marty Dermody for photographing the campus for all of us unable to enjoy the grounds at this time.
Throughout the past few weeks, we have heard the stories of communities, organizations and individuals coming together to support each another amid the outbreak of COVID-19. Employees, Sisters and volunteers of Mother Margaret Hall (MMH) are embracing that spirit to keep MMH staff members safe and healthy. With the help of a mobile sewing machine, a handy seamstress, fabric, a pattern, a cutter and willing hands, nursing and non-nursing staff are now serving our Sisters wearing colorful cloth masks. The smiles may be hidden, but each continues to speak their care and skill with their eyes. With special thanks to Nancy Witschinger, MMH activity coordinator, Sister residents, employees, volunteers and even nurse retirees, all in MMH now have the masks needed to continue ministering to our Sister residents in these uncharted days of the COVID-19 pandemic. Their masks speak of love.
Sisters of Charity and employees came together on Tuesday, March 10 to celebrate Catholic Sisters Week (March 8-14). Human Resources and the SC Communications Office collaborated to plan the afternoon celebration, which included root beer floats and a friendly quiz about the history of the Sisters of Charity. In addition, hearts were distributed throughout the Motherhouse for employees to write special notes to the Sisters.
Company of Charity Formation Personnel (CCFP) met in New York this week to continue to deepen our connection as Federation members and discuss ways in which we can share formation programs and discernment materials as well as develop common experiences. The CCFP includes Sisters Formation personnel and Associate leaders.
