The sisters of Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St. Joseph Convents in Livonia, MI, enjoyed their second annual Market Day on Thursday, July 26.
Each sister received a basket and a storage container and was able to go through the serving line and select whatever fruit and vegetables they wished from the large variety of fresh fruits and vegetables displayed. The nurse aides and two Daughters of Mary, Sister Divya and Sister Francy, assisted those who needed help.
The St. Joseph Convent dining room, decorated with colorful table cloths, flowers and signs, truly looked like a fresh market. Carry-out containers were made up for a few sisters who were unable to attend.
According to Cindy Sawicki, life enrichment coordinator, the effort put into this activity for the sisters was well worth it. She said they were ecstatic over the presentation and choices offered. “It warmed my heart to see the sisters so happy,” exclaimed Cindy.
