SCRANTON – On Dec. 11, 2016, Little Sisters of the Poor Sister Alice, l.s.p., and Sister Marie Therese, l.s.p., both celebrated their 60th Jubilee of First Vows. The Little Sisters marked the occasion with a Mass in the chapel of Holy Family Residence celebrated by the Rev. Joseph Sica, senior priest at Immaculate Conception Parish, Scranton.
The Little Sisters, who have been serving the elderly of Northeastern Pennsylvania since 1908, work closely with staff, volunteers, and benefactors to create a family spirit for the residents who make their home with them. They welcome the elderly who have limited funds and provide for their needs so they can thrive in an atmosphere of respect, dignity, and love.
