SCRANTON, PA – The Little Sisters of the Poor hosted a very special pro-life service at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 in the chapel of Holy Family Residence, 2500 Adams Ave., Scranton. The event, which took place on the 41st anniversary of the Supreme Court decision to legalize abortion, included a reflection by Helen Gohsler, president of the Scranton chapter of Pennsylvanians for Human Life. The event also included praying the Litany for Life and the Chaplet of The Divine Mercy. Refreshments were served afterwards.
The Little Sisters, who have been serving the elderly poor in Northeastern Pennsylvania since 1908, work closely with staff, volunteers, and benefactors in creating a family spirit for the Residents. They welcome the elderly who have limited funds and provide for their needs so they can live their last years in an atmosphere of respect, dignity, and love.
