It was the end of the day on a Friday afternoon. The Sisters were singing Evening Prayer in the chapel. A few Residents were visiting in the lobby just before dinner and employees were heading out for the weekend. Suddenly two energetic women appeared at the front desk saying: “We have a delivery of 130 frozen Market Day pies!” What? How? Who are these angels?
The women were moms from Queen of the Rosary School in Elk Grove. The children at QR had been collecting pennies for several weeks. When their classroom banks were filled, they were able to purchase over 100 Market Day pies for us! Can you imagine how much those pennies weighed knowing that each pie cost between $12.00 and $14.00!!
