Living the Mission

Living the Mission

April 30, 2018

For Easter, in support of disadvantaged citizens in the Portland community, Cecilia Ranger, SNJM and Mary’s Woods residents joined forces and donated clothing to a hundred people living at Lyndon Musolf Manor and St. Francis Apartments.

“The folks who live in these communities are former street people,” said Sr. Cecilia. “Many of them lack the most basic resources needed to get by — like food and clothing.

The effort supported the Mary’s Woods mission to enrich the lives of everyone in the community. “It touched hearts and impacted lives,” added Sr. Cecilia. “We stand together because we believe
in the dignity and worth of every person.”

SNJM employees Anita Lindsay, Peter Foy, Sr. Baumann, and Sr. Ranger’s cousin Peggy helped pack and deliver the items.

From the generosity of Mary’s Woods residents, Sr. Cecilia was also able to purchase candy and made two large Easter baskets for Lyndon Musolf Manor.
