Blessed be God for our AJJs!
May 7, 2023 was a day of joyful gratitude at Holy Family Home as Pat Boyle and Mike Zaleta were welcomed into the Association Jeanne Jugan, making their Promise for the first time, while 34 Jeanne Jugan Associates renewed their commitment with these words:
“In your presence, Lord Jesus, with your grace and through Mary’s intercession, I commit myself to the Association Jeanne Jugan of the Little Sisters of the Poor, for one year.
I promise to serve you in the elderly with joy and love, by following the example of humility and confidence left to us by Jeanne Jugan.”
We offer heartfelt thanks to God for our Jeanne Jugan Associates! How He blesses us with their active and spiritual contribution to our mission!
Holy Family Home is still honored to have Philly’s First Jeanne Jugan Associate – Mary Frances Cantwell. For over 58 years, she has rendered faithful, loving service to countless Residents, Little Sisters, and Guests “following the example of humility and confidence left to us by Jeanne Jugan.”
Following the example of St. Jeanne Jugan, our Associates confide themselves to the care of Our Blessed Mother. This year, they found it fitting to include the May Crowning in their Mass of Renewal of Promises. Eileen Solarz, AJJ was the Crown Bearer and Helena Kim, Resident, crowned our Lady.
