Home for the elderly, poor & destitute.

 

In 2006 the St. Joseph Home was opened for the poor and destitute elderly.
(Dec. 2010: There are now 50 residents and a waiting list)!

Early 2006:
Smile and make believe we have furniture.

Then let's go pray about it.

The Home was built but we had a problem; no furniture!
Once again, the Irish came forward and furnished the entire home!
4
This is kind of hard to believe.  Look at all this stuff!
 
Pilgrims from Ireland, England, America and Canada brought over sheets, towels, dishes and everything imaginable for the Home.

Ruza and Mary.  Will Ruza be eligible?

"You betcha!  Ruza is in!  No income, no one to go to, the perfect candidate for St. Joseph Retirement Home.
Welcome Ruza!
(A few years later Ruza died but she died with dignity and with love.)
Sr. Muriel visits Zula a few days before Zula comes to the Home.

Zula was one of our first residents.  Zula enjoys meeting and greeting people and really enjoys the security in her life at the Home.

Bishop Ratko of Mostar consecrates the altar and celebrates Holy Mass at the Home.

 The Bishop blesses the Retirement Home.

Well, we certainly can't let this food go to waste!
This was a day of celebration!
15
Many pilgrim groups come to attend Mass with the residents.
14
After Mass, pilgrims enjoying a sing a long with the residents.
19
Singing?  You call that singing?
We will show you some singing!

We are all so blessed.
