In 1913, the St. Charles Orphanage opened its doors in Rochester, NH, and welcomed the first group of children to come and live there under the care of the grey nuns. Over the years, the name has changed and the sisters nurturing the children have implemented innovative programs such as group runs in order to provide outlets for energy and room for healing. Below, listen to Mother Paul Marie of the Daughters of Mary, Mother of Healing Love talk about the running program and how the grey nuns of Canada began the work of an orphanage in New Hampshire.
