With our heads still reeling from the powerful depiction of the blessed life of St. Jeanne Jugan just the night before, the home was excited to welcome Dr. Edward and Jeanne Gatz to meet with Residents, Sisters and staff in Lanagan Hall. Dr. and Mrs. Gatz had made moving presentations during the Celebration of Jeanne Jugan. Many cast and crew members and visitors were able to meet with the Gatzes following the program, but Dr. and Mrs. Gatz wanted to spend some real time with the Residents here in the Home.
The Lanagan environment was more relaxed and quieter as the Gatzes told their moving stories in more detail (and with lots of humor). People shared privately with Ed or Jeanne or both. The couple spoke graciously with everyone who hoped to meet them. Their visit allowed for personal spiritual reflection and joyfully shared faith. We miss them already!
