Thanks to some special benefactors, the Little Sisters and their Residents were able to have a very exciting Feast Day in honor of foundress St. Jeanne Jugan on August 30.
The theme for the day was a Hawaiian luau. The noon meal featured a feast of pork, seafood, pineapple, and delicious island drinks and treats.
The Home’s ukulele group performed a few numbers for the audience.Then three performers from Samoa provided additional entertainment. They also played their ukuleles and guitars while dancing native dances in grass skirts to the delight of an auditorium full of Residents and Sisters.
Although St. Jeanne Jugan was originally from France, we are sure she appreciated this festive Hawaiian day celebrated in her honor, because as she always said “Making the Residents happy is all the matters,” and this day certainly made everyone at the Home happy!
Celebrating Saint Jeanne Jugan’s Feast Day!
