Caring for Caregivers


Congratulations to Sister Miriam Nugent, RSM from St Charles Borromeo Church.

Mr. Arthur Paliani nominated Sister Miriam after losing his dear wife Lee.  Mr. Paliani said “Sister Miriam went beyond normal duties to support and comfort my beloved wife Lee and myself.  She gives of herself to help so many people in need of spiritual support and understanding”.

On December 3, 2012, our family and Mr. Paliani surprised Sister Miriam at St. Charles with her plaque, and a special gift.  It was great enjoyment in surprising Sister Miriam.  We would like to thank Joan Bigham for making the special event happen.

Enjoy the photos!!
