SCRANTON -- There was a special send-off in Scranton for the woman who has lead the Little Sisters of the Poor for the past six years.

Special versions of songs from the Sound of Music were performed to honor Mother Maureen Weiss. After six years as mother superior, she is off to a new post in Massachusetts.

On Sunday, there was a special reception in her honor. Mother Maureen says she will miss the Electric City, especially the people. "The people, the people, the wonderful people of Scranton, the spirit is so hometown, I have felt a part of it, and so it's very emotional to say goodbye."

Mother Theresa Louisa will be taking over for Mother Maureen at the Holy Family Residence in Scranton.
