Katherine came to Villa Guadalupe when she was 92. She celebrated her 100th birthday on the feast of St. Joseph, March 19. She created beautiful rugs and honored her culture with the skills passed on by her mom and the talents given to her by God. Katherine has also ‘woven her way’ into the hearts of the family of Villa Guadalupe.

I have been employed with Little Sisters of the Poor since 2015. Isaiah 46:4 reads, “And I will still be carrying you when you are old. Your hair will turn gray, and I will carry you to safety.” Being the hands and feet for JESUS to use me and to help the aging elderly find strength in the fact that even in old age, GOD is there. I am truly blessed to be working at Little Sisters of the Poor to advocate and to be on a mission together to care for the aging elderly.

“A great joy for me to be back here for the 4th time and to find some of the same Residents each time but most of all the same simplicity and many of the same needs, “JOY, JOY, JOY!” I am grateful to God for giving me again the privilege to serve his Elderly children in dear Gallup in whatever I am able and more thankful for the upcoming 40th Anniversary of Villa Guadalupe in December 12th this year. Blessed be God.”
– Sr. Paul
“I like living with the Little Sisters because it is so happy, so comfortable, and so spiritual. You feel taken care of and that is beautiful. We are a community and we look out for each other. As soon as you walk in the door, the first thing you feel is love.”

"I have been working for Little Sisters of the Poor in the laundry since 1997. I love working to keep the Residents looking clean and well-dressed. The spirit of Saint Jeanne Jugan is such an inspiration for me. I only wish I could perform like she did."
