Newark, Delaware


Delaware was one of the states that I could technically say “I’ve been there,” but only because I’d driven through it on the way to somewhere else. Now I’ve got a real Delaware experience. My friend Kiri drove down from Pennsylvania to join me.

Yesterday I had an opportunity to visit The Little Sisters of the Poor in Newark. The mission there is:

“As Little Sisters of the Poor we care for the elderly poor in the spirit of humble service we have received from our foundress, Saint Jeanne Jugan. We welcome the elderly as we would Jesus Christ himself and serve them with love and respect until God calls them home.”

I was fortunate enough to speak with many of the residents, help with serving lunch, and even made some great new friends. For more information please visit their website, here.
