The Sisters of St. Joseph Brentwood are the grateful recipients of a grant for $12,500 from SOAR (Support Our Aging Religious). This grant will allow the Congregation to purchase Eye-Pal solo machines. These machines take a picture of materials a Sister is trying to read and reads it out loud to her. With many of the Congregation’s older Sisters experiencing diminished sight, these machines will keep them the ardent readers they have always been! Thank you to SOAR for understanding the need for these machines and supporting the Sisters with this grant.
