On Friday, December 6th, Little Company of Mary Hospital (LCMH) celebrated the life and legacy of Venerable Mary Potter at a Foundress Day Eucharistic Liturgy, which was held in the hospital’s chapel. The liturgy included the initial commitment and the re-commitment of the Little Company of Mary Associates. The Province Leader of this special ceremony was Sister Kathleen McIntyre, L.C.M. and the Provincial Liaison was Sister Sharon Ann Walsh, L.C.M.
Associates of the Little Company of Mary are part of the original inspiration of the Foundress, Mary Potter. She sought to gather men and women who shared her vision of creating a better world by living lives of faith, hope and love in the service of the dying.
“In living as Mary’s companions we seek to have her simplicity as the Lord’s handmaid, the strong faith of her fiat, and the joy of her magnificat, for we know that we have received the incomparable gift of being chosen to share with Mary in the life and love of her Son Jesus.” (LCM Associates Handbook)
