Little Sisters of the Poor to Host Daily Holy Hour
June 21 to July 4 in Conjunction with National
“Fortnight for Freedom” Prayer Movement
In support of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ “Fortnight for Freedom” – a national call for prayer for religious freedom –, the Little Sisters of the Poor will host a daily Holy Hour from 4:30-5:30 p.m. June 21 to July 4 in the chapel of Holy Family Residence, 2500 Adams Ave., Scranton. The Holy Hour will take place from 4:15-5:15 p.m. on Fridays. The public is invited to attend.
Culminating on Independence Day, this period of prayer will be offered with the special intention for the protection of religious freedom in the United States.
The Little Sisters of the Poor, 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.
