In consideration of the COVID-19 restrictions, we had a modified celebration of Mother Angeline Teresa's 38th anniversary. We had a special Mass in honor of the occasion and showed the EWTN version of Mother's life over our closed circuit channel and had hospitality cart with cookies taken by our Activity Staff to serve during the "show". We also gave out prayer cards for Mother's Cause. We also did a display for our staff showcasing Mother's life. We later served freshly baked "sticky buns" to them.
