The Little Sisters of the Poor and their volunteers will be with us after each Mass on April 30, 2023 to collect for their mission. Your contributions enable them to continue the work of their foundress, Saint Jeanne Jugan, in caring for the elderly poor at their home on Benton Avenue in Brighton Heights (only four minutes from our parish). They are counting on your continued support. Donations may also be made online at If you or anyone you know is looking for a new job opportunity, the Little Sisters of the Poor have several positions open including CNAs and RNs. If you are interested in making a difference, please contact their Human Resources office at 412-307-1131.
