Senior Sisters assemble 6 Christmas Shoeboxes to be sent to needy children in developing countries.....

4- in Canada - Date of publication 11-14-2005
Senior sisters in Edmonton, all of whom are 90 years of age and over, join in the annual 'Operation Christmas Child' project assembling shoeboxes of useful items and a special Christmas message meant to brighten the Christmas season of needy children in developing countries around the world.....

Several senior sisters all of whom are 90 years of age and over chose to join the ‘Operation Christmas Child’ shoebox project sharing simple useful items with those children of our world who still do not have enough material goods to live with dignity.  This annual project provides a shoebox size of box to individuals and groups of various kinds seeking ways to brighten the Christmas season of children in need especially in the developing countries of our world.

These industrious senior sisters assembled useful items like toothpaste and hairbrushes as well as school supplies such as pencils, crayons and scotch tape.  Each of their 6 shoeboxes included an age appropriate toy suitable for either a girl or a boy with even a little candy, as well! 

These generous religious women were very happy participating in this project.  It is a good feeling when you find creative, concrete ways to express your care for those who lack adequate material goods, especially women and children.

Actually, it is Maria at 97 years of age who took on the task of writing a personal Christmas message to be included in each of their six shoeboxes!  The particular beauty of an effort such as this one, which is seemingly insignificant, is the fact that it combines the actions and projects of individuals and all kinds of groups so that hundreds and hundreds of children in developing countries have a little brighter Christmas. 

The wonderful commitment of these senior sisters also includes holding in their personal and community prayer intentions those children who will receive the six boxes that they have prepared!
