“If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.”
1 John 3:17-18

Little Sisters of the Poor
The Little Sisters of the Poor were founded in 1839 by Jeanne Jugan with a mission to sever poor elderly people. The Sisters first arrived in Pittsburgh in 1872, with a facility on Penn Ave in Lawrenceville. A second house was built for the Sisters in 1922 in Brighton Heights.
