New Van a Big Hit!

Van1Thanks to two generous grants, the Sisters were able to purchase a handicapped-accessible Toyota van.

Our many thanks to the SOAR! Foundation (Support Our Aging Religious) and to the W.F. and Marie A. Batton Foundation.

This van will make a significant difference for our retired and infirm Sisters living at the Province Center and at Mercy Care & Retirement Center and for people taking them to doctor’s appointments. The ramp makes it easy to use for Sisters with walkers and those needing wheelchairs.

The van arrived on Friday, September 5, and has already proven to be a big hit!
