Mission and Heritage Week

Last week was Mission & Heritage Week for the Felician Sisters, and we took part in some fun activities to celebrate the week. The special week began on Oct. 4, which is the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi and ended on Oct. 10, the feast day of the Blessed Mary Angela, who founded the Felician Sisters. This year's theme was "Extending Mercy, Restoring Hope." So what did we do? Find out below!

Annual St. Francis Humane Society Drive: Throughout the week we collected items for animals, such as empty toilet paper rolls, peanut butter, pet toys, paper towels, and more. On Friday there was a Pet Blessing at Madonna University where guests were able to get their pets blessed.

Scavenger Hunt: Angela Hospice staff members got to take part in a scavenger hunt to test their knowledge about the Felician Sisters. 

Lady Jacoba cookies: A few of our team members made Lady Jacoba cookies for the Felician Sisters in Livonia. St. Francis loved these cookies, and at the end of his life these were all he could eat. They are named after Lady Jacoba, who made the cookies for St. Francis.

Chili Cook-Off: There was also a Chili Cook-Off, where employees brought their best chili recipe to the competition. Congratulations to nurse William Long who took first place! Director of Marketing Margaret Breeden's vegetarian chili came in second, and Melinda Thornton earned the third place slot. All proceeds benefited the Angela Hospice Employee Emergency Assistance Fund.
Special guests from the Livonia Fire Department judged the competition.
