A special day was set aside on August 2 to celebrate the lives of our elderly Residents.Residents enjoyed carnival games, jewelry making, munching on homemade cookies, and sipping on Sr. Christine’s fresh fruit smoothies. Residents’ Day is part of the Little Sisters month long celebration of Saint Jeanne Jugan, our foundress. Other activities that will take place around the Home during August include stories about Jeanne’s life, a French dinner, wine and cheese social, and prayers. The Feast Day of Saint Jeanne Jugan is August 30.
Novena Prayer to Saint Jeanne Jugan.
Jesus, you rejoiced and praised your Father for having revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven. We thank you for the graces granted to your humble servant, Jeanne Jugan, to whom we confide our petitions and needs.
(pause to voice your personal needs and intentions)
Father of the poor, you have never refused the prayer of the lowly. We ask you, therefore, to hear the petitions that she presents to you on our behalf. Jesus, through Mary, your Mother and ours, we ask this of you, who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit now and forever. Amen
