Mother Provincial Maria Christine lives at St. Joseph’s Home, but her busy schedule keeps her on the road visiting the other homes in the Chicago province a large portion of the time. Every three years she dedicates two weeks to an official visitation to each home in the province. During this visit she can spend extra time with the Residents, Little Sisters and staff at the home.
During the last week of March and first week of April Mother Maria Christine made one of these official visits to our home. Our Residents and staff celebrated the occasion with a multi cultural Talent Show. A variety of performers represented their diverse homelands—from the Philippines to India, Lebanon, Poland, Sweden, Ireland, Guatemala, Mexico and Peru.
In addition, a corner of the auditorium was dedicated to showcasing the handiwork and hidden talents of our staff. It was a delightful afternoon of entertainment and fellowship. Though we may work side-by-side every day, we came away knowing a little more about each other.
