Partnership in Elder Care
Partnership in Elder Care

The elderly are those who carry history, who carry the faith and give it to us as an inheritance. The elderly are the treasure of our society. Let us ask for the grace to take care of, to listen to and venerate our elderly.

Pope Francis 11/19/13

Our Story 

Parents through the generations have taught their children to honor, love and care for the elderly and those most in need. For us Daughters of St. Paul, as a religious community of women, this life lesson is truly a sacred trust passed from one generation of sisters to the next. Some of the most meaningful moments we share in community are milestones, such as fifty, sixty and even seventy-plus anniversaries celebrating the religious life of a Daughter of St. Paul. We treasure those moments! In an unspoken yet understood way, special anniversaries signify the bond we share and commitment we have to one another as religious sisters.

One of our greatest concerns as a community is how to meet the medical, assisted living and nursing care needs of our elder and infirmed sisters. Their health and wellbeing during one of life’s most challenging moments remain among our highest priorities. We honor their life of ministry and service by ensuring their elder years are years of comfort and care. Yet, at a time of escalating costs this remains a constant challenge and concern. On their behalf, we ask for your support.

Please consider personally supporting one of our elder sisters by sponsoring the cost required for her care. For nearly 100 years those who value our service and ministry have blessed us. Your generosity will affirm a life well lived and enable our elder sisters to live life’s final journey with dignity and respect. Thank you for your prayerful consideration of this personal request.

As the elderly sister approaches the fullness of her consecration with her peaceful presence, fidelity and prayer, she has a precious contribution to give to the community and to the mission of the congregation. In the midst of the sisters, she is a sign of the paschal mystery and the Lord’s faithfulness.

Our Need

Our “Partnership in Elder Care” reflects an invitation on behalf of those who have walked life’s journey in ministry and service to God’s people. We ask for your support of our elder and infirmed Sisters during one of life’s most challenging moments by sponsoring a portion of a Sister’s medical, assisted living and nursing care.

  • Sr. Regina and Sr. Maria Augusta (who is now almost 100 years old), in the Dedham bookcenter. Each Senior Sister is given a particular community of the Daughters of St. Paul around the country to pray for.

  • Sr. Veronica working in the mini-media department where the Senior Sisters continue their mission making rosaries, rosary bracelets, and other small religious objects which are often requested by people in our Centers around the country.

  • The rosary is a cherished prayer by which we bring the needs of the world to the Lord through Mary.
