As the COVID-19 pandemic enters its third year, the Little Sisters of the Poor continue their vigilance in taking care of the elderly poor who live in their Holy Family Residence in St. Paul.
“Despite the restrictions and extra precautions, we realize, with God’s grace, that this is just a period in our lives, even though it’s lasting longer than we’d like,” said Mother Theresa Robertson, the mother superior who oversees the residence.
“What gives me hope as well is our residents. There’s a great resiliency with the elderly,” she said. “They, and our staff, understand that we’re doing what we have to do to help everyone stay healthy.”
