Pictured here is one of our special volunteers posing with another volunteer while they “press” the Little Sisters’ habits, veils, and chapel linens. Marian Hanigan came to the Little Sisters a year and a half ago to offer her skills in any area that was needed. When she was asked if she liked to iron, her response was, “Yes, I do. I will help wherever you need me the most.”
Dinner and a movie anyone? No, Marian enjoyed dinner and an iron to top off her day! Marian came every Monday evening just after her full-time job in downtown St. Paul to have dinner with our Residents, then ironed for the next two hours. She and the Residents enjoyed each other over dinner; Marian was interested in their lives and they were very much interested in her work and upcoming marriage. Marian’s last day at the Little Sisters was Monday, April 14th; her last day at her job was Friday April 18th; her wedding is May 3rd. Marian and Matt, will live in Kansas City where they will both volunteer at our Kansas City Home. Husband-to-be, Matthew, is already a volunteer there. We pray for God’s abundant blessings on their new journey together. Kansas City, here they come! You are indeed fortunate to have them join forces with you.
