Each October 4th through October 10th, the ministries of the Felician Sisters of North America celebrate Mission and Heritage Week. This is a special time to look back at the unique history of the Felician Sisters to appreciate the present gift of their support in the work that we do and to look ahead with hope. The Theme this year was “Build with Living Stones.” This message comes to us as we remember that we all help to build the communities in which we live and work. To portray how we live this message Vicky Schneider, our Director of Mission Integration created a display of stones. Residents, families and staff were encouraged to create a rock with their name on it. The photo displayed features Albin, one of our Villa St. Francis resident and Director of Marketing and Community Relations, Lisa Richardson as they each personalize their stone. Albin dedicated his stone to his wife for her next visit. This interaction is just one way the Villa lives out it’s’ core values.
