Rain drops and high winds didn’t stop the Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland (and some friends) from connecting with their fellow sisters on Sunday through a “care caravan.” Dozens of cars drove by Regina Health Center and Light of Hearts Villa, honking and waving as they sent special messages through signs.

Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland drove “Care Caravans” to two nursing facilities to connect with their fellow sisters and other residents and staff.
Dozens of cars wound through the parking lot at Light of Hearts Villa, honking their horns as passengers waved signs with messages of encouragement out the windows.
The caravans, which visited Regina Health Center in Richfield and Light of Hearts Villa in Bedford, were meant to connect the sisters on the inside of the care facilities with those on the outside.
In a statement, Sister Susan Durkin, president of the Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland, said they have been in regular contact with their sisters via letters, cards, video chat and many phone calls. However the caravans allowed them to connect in person while exercising safe social distancing.
Regina Health Center and Light of Hearts Villa are ministries of the Sisters of Charity Health System.
