Members of the Warsaw/Minto-based “Little Flower Girls Club” visited here Saturday morning, attending Mass in our chapel and then joining our residents at snack-time to give presentations on the saints they had studied. After this, the girls and their mothers enjoyed a tour of our facility, during which they were especially intrigued by our “sky-walk,” which connects the two buildings that make up St. Anne’s.
We enjoyed having them visit. Such times when young people come are a blessing to us and, I believe, enrich the lives of the children as well. It helps our residents to see young, smiling faces and to have the chance to interact with them; the young people who visit can grow and learn from visiting with members of an older generation.
At St. Anne’s, we are grateful for the frequent visits from young people throughout the year. A visit to our “Happenings” page will illustrate the number of groups that come in, from time to time, to visit our residents. Like yesterday’s visit, all these interactions can help both the young people and our residents to “blossom;” we truly enrich each other’s lives.
Although I don’t have any photos from yesterday’s gathering, I wanted to share a couple that illustrate the joy of inter-generational encounters.
