Sister Miriam Retires From Laguna Honda
by Sister Miriam Walsh

When I first walked into Laguna Honda Hospital in 1981, twenty-seven years ago, I knew I had found my calling to provide pastoral care services to my fellow San Franciscans.

Then, I never considered I would one day retire.

It has been my privilege to have served San Francisco for nearly thirty years, but I have decided I must retire this December.

Laguna Honda is graciously celebrating my retirement on December 7 between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. in Laguna Honda’s third floor library. A presentation is scheduled at 2:00 p.m.

I hope you will join me as I celebrate the years I have devoted to Laguna Honda. I’d like to tell you how much I have enjoyed helping and supporting people, and advocating for their care. I especially want to thank people who voted in 1999 to approve rebuilding Laguna Honda to care for our elderly.

And I’d like to thank each of you for helping expand volunteer and pastoral programs at Laguna Honda. Residents will need your continued support after I retire.

I hope to see you December 7. Please stop by.

Sister Miriam Walsh
Laguna Honda Hospital Pastoral Care Director
