As Sisters change their residences and re-establish community in new areas, we thought it would be nice to know a little about the experiences they are having.
The majority of Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart have been re-located from the Motherhouse, St. Augustine Hall, other Philadelphia locations as well as Ogdensburg and some of the Baltimore and Buffalo area Sisters. Still to be finalized will be the moves of Sisters who are eligible for low-income housing.
Maryellen spoke with Sister Mary McMahon about the many opportunities to embrace a healthy lifestyle at Holy Redeemer/Lafayette. There is a fitness and strength training room as well as organized classes in various exercise styles and yoga– including chair yoga.
Sisters have created a schedule to gather for prayer at various times and attend Mass regularly. We even heard that Sister Bernadette LaLonde will participate in the lighting of the Menorah during Chanukah!
Music and movies are offered in the evening. All in all a stimulating, healthy, balanced lifestyle is available for those who wish to be engaged.
As we move forward, look for more stories from the Sisters about their new locations to keep you informed of how everyone is embracing this new phase of Community Living!
