“Yá'át'ééh!” Greetings to you all in the Most Holy Name of Jesus Christ from our mission Home in Villa Guadalupe!
Thanks be to God that we are gradually resuming all of our normal activities for our dear Residents. May God be praised that our Residents continue to remain COVID free since January of this year. We were fortunate to have no positive cases among Residents and Staff for many months. This is due to the continuation of preventative measures we are still taking including wearing masks in the Home and frequent washing of hands. Unfortunately, we must resume weekly testing again, as per directives from the Department of Health, due to positive cases among our Staff since October 12.
Last month, on October 7, we said farewell, or should I say, “au revoir” (until we meet again) to our Little Sister Rose Veronica. She received her obedience for our Home in Kansas City, Missouri. We owe her our deep gratitude for her dedication and devotedness to our elderly at Villa Guadalupe. The same month, on October 27th, we welcomed, with open hands and hearts, our Little Sister Cecilia Marie Therese, who was stationed in our Home in Saint Paul, Minnesota. We continue to bless and thank God for the gift of vocation and the willingness of our Little Sisters to go where they are called to serve with love.
Some highlights of this month of November include our efforts in taking care of our planet, our common home, by learning from Spirit Farm how to regenerate soil in order for us to hopefully grow our own vegetables and flowers next year.
Also, we honored with pride and appreciation all veterans especially our very own. We gave special recognition in our auditorium, on Veteran’s Day, to four among our Residents (Eileen Ledford, Samantha Daniels, Robert Gilroy, and Louis Garibay) and two staff members (Lucretia Morris and Jeremy Gallegos) for the service they have given to our country.
All throughout this month, we continue to pray for our deceased loved ones among our Residents, Families, Benefactors, AJJs, Volunteers and all connected to the work of our Home, at our daily Eucharist in our chapel. May the Divine Assistance remain always with them and may all the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace.
As we approach Thanksgiving Day, we never cease to bless God for the continued support of all our benefactors, families and friends. We would not be able to care for the Elderly confided to us without your help. Happy Thanksgiving to all and may God bless you. “Ahéhee'.”
Gratefully in Christ,
Sr. Theresa Louisa, l.s.p.
