Statement of Bishop Daniel E. Thomas Regarding the

Withdrawal of the Little Sisters of the Poor from the Diocese of Toledo

 

It is with a heavy heart that I received the news that the Little Sisters of the Poor, who sponsor and staff Sacred Heart Home in Oregon, have announced their decision to withdraw, effective Winter 2018, from the Home and from the Diocese of Toledo.  For 133 years, the Little Sisters have exercised an invaluable apostolate of care for the poor, sick, elderly and dying in our diocese.   Their public witness of the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity and obedience, and selfless service in Jesus’ name of their brothers and sisters in need, have been a tremendous blessing for countless individuals and families.  The Little Sisters of the Poor will be sorely missed.

 

While we, as a diocesan family, are saddened by their pending departure, we understand the Sisters are engaged in strategic planning and new initiatives which will address challenges, including an aging community coupled with declining vocations, that precipitated the Little Sisters to make such a decision.  In the announcement the Little Sisters made today, they noted, “As part of a strategic plan aimed at strengthening their ministry and bolstering the quality of their religious and community life, the Little Sisters have recognized the need to withdraw from a certain number of homes in the United States, while at the same time dedicating their resources to much needed upgrades and reconstruction projects in several others.”

 

It is my sincere hope that the healthcare provider which assumes sponsorship of Sacred Heart Home, will carry on the dedicated pastoral care and loving environment for which the Little Sisters are so well known.   

 

The Little Sisters of the Poor have repeatedly expressed gratitude for the support they have received over the years from the Catholic community here in the Diocese of Toledo, and for the great generosity over time of the bishops, priests, deacons, consecrated religious, lay faithful and countless benefactors, associates and friends of their community. 

 

We respect the dedication the Little Sisters of the Poor show to those in need and will be forever grateful for the selfless dedication and devotion they have shown to the people in our diocese.  We extend our thanks to Mother Loraine Marie Maguire, provincial superior of the Little Sisters of the Poor and to Mother Jeanne Mary Piche, local superior, along with all the sisters, present and past, who have served the faithful of the Diocese of Toledo for over a hundred years.

 

All the faithful of the 19 counties in Northwest Ohio are invited to join me in offering the 5:00 p.m. Vigil Mass of the First Sunday of Advent on December 1, 2018 at Rosary Cathedral during which we will publicly offer our prayerful thanksgiving for the presence and service of the Little Sisters of the Poor in the Diocese of Toledo.

 

 

Editor’s Note: The Little Sisters of the Poor are an international congregation of Roman Catholic women religious founded in 1839 by Saint Jeanne Jugan. Together with a diverse network of collaborators, they serve the elderly poor in over 30 countries around the world.

 

 

DIVORCED-SEPARATED MINISTRY

 

Please keep those attending the Summer series of the Rose Sweet video program "Surviving Divorce" in your prayers.  Plans are in the making for the video series to run again this Fall both in Hicksville and in Bryan.  Another Divorced-Separated Retreat is being planned for the beginning of 2019.  If you are divorced, separated, or just suffering from a bad break-up, and you would like to join our support community, join the DIVORCED-SEPARATED MINISTRY Facebook Group or contact us through St. Michael Catholic Church, Hicksville... leave a message at 419-542-8202 or email saintmichaelhicksville@gmail.com.  We welcome questions about annulments, what divorced/separated parishioners can still do in the Church, and where to get help.  Please pass this information on to anyone you may know who's divorced and in need of support.

Bethlehem Christian Families

 

Announcement

         

We are proud to introduce ourselves as the “Bethlehem Christian Families”, from the Holy Land. We have come to the United States representing the Christian wood carvers of Bethlehem that rely on the tourism to support their families.

 

        Due to the bad situation and the interruption of the tourist trade, 500 Hundred families of the Holy Land are in danger of having to leave their homes in search of work. Our mission is to bring and sell the Olive Wood Carvings to Catholic Churches in the United States to help the Christian families remain in their homes and support their families. These Christians who make their livelihood through the selling of their hand carved Olive Wood religious items are depending on us to bring these beautiful carving, such as, Nativity Scenes, Crucifixes, Picture of the Last Supper, and several other religious items to you.

 

Please look over these carving that are available to you at the weekend of September 1st & 2nd /2018

 

And help support this self-help project that enables to keep the Christians present in the Holy Land. Your help and understanding in this crucial matter is greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you,

 

Amy Abufarha
