Sister Linda wishes to share this prayer with you at Easter.
O Lord, give me grace to make every effort to supplement faith with moral courage,
moral courage with knowledge,
knowledge with self-control,
self-control with patience,
patience with piety,
piety with fraternal affection,
and fraternal affection with love.
May these virtues keep me both active and fruitful.
Blessings of Easter to all…
If you choose Assisted Living when active and mobile, you can make the most of the community by engaging in the activity and excercise programs; you can come and go freely; you can enjoy nutritious meals prepared by professionals and spend little or no time cleaning! Minimize the time spent on housekeeping and food prep! Enjoy nutritious meals! You can make new friends and invite existing friends to visit. Someone is there should you need a ride to the doctor, want to send out some dry cleaning, or need attention for a health issue. As mobility and health needs change with aging, you can remain in safe, familiar surroundings with an established routine and ready access to help with activities of daily living. Consider joining the Nazareth House family now!
