Catherine Spalding House: Welcome, Happy Birthday, Adieu
Massachusetts Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and Associates gathered together recently to celebrate birthdays, to welcome SCNA Director Beth Vetter and visiting associates, and to bid Adieu to Bev Hoffman, SCN, at the end of her Massachusetts summer at Catherine Spalding House.
Ann and Anne-Marie prepared prayer and a scrumptious, healthy lunch, followed by a relaxing afternoon. Ann Susan Villa, SCN, and Beth celebrated their birthdays in person, while the group celebrated Pat Mc Issac over the phone, as she was unable to attend.
Participants also brought backpacks, school supplies and gift cards to contribute to St. Katharine Drexel Parish ( Tess’ parish) Back-to-school Drive the following day, for Project Right, a community organization in Dorchester, Mass.
