The Little Sisters of the Poor Sacred Heart Home, located at 930 South Wynn Rd., Oregon, celebrated the closing ceremony for their 125th Anniversary year on Feb. 3.
 
The event included a gathering of friends and benefactors of the Little Sisters over the years. Liturgy was celebrated by Bishop Leonard Blair and con-celebrated by a number of Diocesan priests.
 
After the Liturgy concluded, guests were led in a procession down the second floor hallway to an area taped off by caution and construction signs. The Bishop then proceeded to bless the area, which would be renovated into a future nursing bed room. This area, along with several others, is a project being undertaken by the Little Sisters of the Poor to expand the number of skilled nursing beds from 25 to 47 beds, leaving a remaining six assisted living rooms and 20 independent living apartments.
