On A Mission At Maria Regina Residence

The Mission package ministry is monthly sending packages to those in need in parts of the USA, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines.  Sisters of St. Joseph residing in Maria Regina have recently responded to the needs!

On Wednesday afternoons, a group gather in Macrina’s Place and organize care packages with a small towel, soap and several other items (including hard candy!) in a bag to be sent to the dear neighbor in one of these locations.

Recently, the care packages were sent to our own S. Gloria Cruz for distribution in Puerto Rico.  Along with the care packages were prayers for the people of Puerto Rico!  S. Joan Bolte even shared a story from her personal experience on the island.

Sisters Mary Daly, Joan Bolte, Eugenia Daley, Mary Gildea, along with Associate Mary Lou Locke were among the workers on this project.
