Archbishop serves with Little Sisters of the Poor

By Catholic Review Staff
Archbishop William E. Lori celebrated the feast day of St. Joseph March 19 with the Little Sisters of the Poor in Catonsville.
After celebrating Mass, the archbishop helped the sisters serve lunch to the residents of St. Martin’s Home for the Aged, which offers independent living and assisted living for low-income seniors.
Mass concelebrants included Cardinal William H. Keeler, archbishop emeritus of Baltimore, and Redemptorist Father Robert Wojtek, pastor of Sacred Heart of Jesus-Sagrado Corazón de Jesús in Highlandtown. Father Wojtek’s mother, Betty, is a resident of St. Martin’s.
Archbishop Lori, Cardinal Keeler and other visitors toured renovated resident areas.
According to Little Sister of the Poor Rosemary Rese, Archbishop Lori made light of a fire alarm that sounded as he was preparing for Mass, citing the warm welcome he always receives at St. Martin’s and joking, “today it was so welcome, that it set off the fire alarm system.”
It was a false alarm, according to Sister Rosemary.
