PAWTUCKET EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | MAY 8-14, 2019 FAITH 5 PAWTUCKET - Fifteen individu- als or groups will be honored by the Diocese of Providence this month with the 2019 Lumen Gentium Catholic Service Award. The city-based Little Sisters of the Poor are one of those winners, set to take home the Community Service & Charitable Outreach award for their many acts to help others. The Little Sisters say they are humbled to be named recipients of this year's award in one of nine categories. The Lumen Gentium awards, trans- lated from Latin as "Light for the Nations," honor those "who toil in the vineyard of the Lord," without com- pensation or acclaim for their efforts. The awards are intended to recog- nize individuals and groups for their contributions to the life of the church and service to those most in need in the Diocese. Mother Mercy Stella Theresa, a Little Sisters member with a long his- tory in Pawtucket, grew up down the street and volunteered as a little girl. She said the Little Sisters had no idea they were receiving the award, and the prospect of awards is not why they do their work. She said they'll accept the award humbly as God's gift. The Little Sisters come alongside residents who are critically ill, giving personal care and attention to help- ing them as individuals, she said. Hospitality is a great strength for the organization, and they do it in the name of Jesus. Their lives are meant to be a witness of faith, love and care for the elderly. The Little Sisters couldn't do every· thing they do without the generous gifts of others, she said, and always welcome benefactors to come see what they do. Since 1881, the Little Sisters of the Poor have ministered to those in need in Rhode Island, first in Providence, then in the Holy Trinity Home in Pawtucket and now in the Jeanne Jugan Residence on Main Street in Pawtucket. In that time, members say they have been blessed to experience the devoted service and friendship of generations of vol- unteers, supporters, benefactors and staff, as well as the companionship of many residents who have lived at the home over the years. "In accepting this award, we wish to express our deep gratitude and recog- nize the efforts of so many who have allowed Saint Jeanne Jugan's mission to mission to thrive in Rhode Island," they said in a joint statement. Bishop Thomas J. Tobin will pres- ent the award during the seventh annual Lumen Gentium Awards Dinner at Twin River Event Center in Lincoln, Rhode Island, on Wednesday, May 15, at 6 p.m. All are invited to join and celebrate the spe- cial recognition of the mission along with the other recipients of this year's awards. Tickets for the event are available for purchase online. All proceeds from the dinner will benefit youth ministry programs in the Diocese of Providence. The Little Sisters of the Poor are an international congregation of Roman Catholic women founded in 1839 by Saint Jeanne Jugan.
