Sister Rose Mercurio volunteers to make baskets  with the nonprofit, Alleluia Basket program in the St. Louis area.  She is seen holding up a toothbrush with two other volunteers in this picture.
The gift of Alleluia Baskets

Sister Rose Mercurio started volunteering for the Alleluia Basket program in March 2020, after retiring from active ministry. Alleluia Baskets was started by Karen Mesler, an eighth grade Parish School of Religion (PSR) teacher, at All Saints in St. Peters, Missouri, in 2004. Sister Rose shared, “As we are shopping for items, sorting them, packing them away and then starting to fill the baskets, I think of the children who will be receiving them and the joy it will bring to their hearts. I know that they are children who would otherwise not receive anything for Easter.”
