Summer Service Witness



As a college student entering her senior year at Benedictine College, Atchison, Kans., Katherine Dea is hanging out with other seniors this summer.

This Sacred Heart of Templeton parishioner is spending her summer working at the Mullen House for the Aged located in Denver as part of the Live in Service program offered by the Little Sisters of the Poor.

“They invite young ladies to apply for a job working with them over the summer,” said Dea. “If you are accepted to the job, you live with them in one of their homes. The Little Sisters of the Poor have homes for the elderly. They have nursing care, assisted living and apartments.”

She is working with three other young women who live in community with the sisters at the Mullen Home.
