Our Begging Tradition
We have maintained the begging tradition of our foundress Saint Jeanne Jugan, relying on the charity of those in our local communities. Our begging Little Sister is no longer known by her begging basket, but by our “begging van.” She and her helpers go out daily to markets, places of business, farms, and nurseries seeking food and commodities to offset our operating expenses. Our Sisters can also be found on weekends at Catholic parishes asking for both financial and spiritual assistance and seeking to build friendships and support for the day-to-day activities of our Home.
Although we rely heavily on our Begging Sister to bring home much needed items, we also reach out to our local communities requesting donations of both time and funds that support our mission of serving the elderly poor.
