We are an association of Catholic lay men and women whose mission is to imbue the world with the spirit of St. Jeanne Jugan and her mission of hospitality in our daily milieu. We work in close collaboration with the Little Sisters, for we wish to be the extension of their hands and their hearts!
New members of the Association undergo a year of spiritual preparation and make their promise on the feast of St. Joseph the Worker, together with the other members of the Association who renew their annual promise the same day.
The Association members meet several times throughout the year in order to continue deepening their understanding of the spirit of St. Jeanne Jugan.
Some of the AJJ activities at Holy Family Residence include:
- assisting with the meal service of the Residents
- helping in arts and crafts
- driving or accompanying Residents for outings and appointments
- organizing weekly bingo and card games
- helping the activity department with celebrations for feast days, holidays and other special events
- spending quality time with Residents through friendly visits
- many of other opportunities for individualized activities
