The Mother Daughter Tea is a wonderful event for Mother’s Day. This year was the second tea that I attended with my mother, Kay Gallagher. The staff at Holy Family and the Association Jeanne Jugan does such a nice job planning this event, and they provide everyone with such delicious cookies to enjoy with our tea!
There are many aspects about this event that really make it special. It not only gives the Residents and their daughters an excuse to dress up, but it also provides a great opportunity to meet and socialize with other Residents and their family members each year. As someone who travels from Colorado annually for this event, the Mother Daughter Tea has begun to feel more like a family reunion to me. The Little Sisters, their staff, and all of the Residents’ families strive to make people feel so welcome and at home that they really do begin to feel like family.
The Mother Daughter Tea is also special to our family because it brings back many fond memories for my mother of sharing a daily cup of tea with her own mother. We also enjoy looking at the old pictures of the Residents with their children when they were young mothers and daughters themselves. This entire event is such a special thing to do on Mother’s Day weekend and a tradition my mother and I intend to keep sharing!
