In August, seven American young women between ages 18-40 traveled to Ireland to serve alongside the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm at Our Lady’s Manor in Dalkey, Ireland. Stacey Sumereau, AIG’s Program Coordinator, led SALT along with Sr. Mary Donovan, the Carmelite Sisters’ vocation director, and Sr. Peter Lillian Di Maria, director of AIG. The volunteers came from across the United States as a result of national advertising efforts speaking on college campuses, service fairs, radio and Catholic magazine advertising. This is SALT’s second year, and first international program.
The Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm and AIG are planning a mission program for young women ages 18 to 40. AIG is committed to education for all ages, and these programs promise to be an exciting time of exposure to individuals with dementia, learning about care of the elderly, and reflecting on personal experiences alongside the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm.
Serving the Aged Lovingly Today (SALT) is a new service program that connects young women ages 18-40 to the Carmelite Charism through service to the elderly. The program was developed by the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm.
