"Accustom yourself continually to make many acts of love, for they enkindle and melt the soul."

—St. Teresa of Avila

Sparrow's Nest Graduates

We are thrilled for our three students who will be celebrating high school graduation in a few days! Each student will be going in exciting directions after school, with one joining the military, one planning on attending nursing school, and the third is joining the workforce. All of these options are successful outcomes and we are so proud of our residents for their hard-work and determination. Thank you to all who have supported the Sparrow’s Nest.
