"SALT was one of the most amazing experiences I've had on my faith journey... I can't wait to return and work with the aged and infirm again! The Carmelite Sisters along with Stacey are so INCREDIBLE when it comes to combining support, prayer, and understanding of one's capabilities.  I left Ireland with lifelong friends, or more accurately ANGELS, in the residents that I connected with there.  I will CERTAINLY be returning as soon as I can!" - Francesca, 2016 SALT Volunteer
