Tyler Lawyers Donate Exercise Bike To Nuns

Attorneys at a Tyler-based law firm have provided for the fitness needs of some local nuns.

The attorneys at Martin Walker PC provided a NordicTrack Grand Tour iFit Exercise Bike to the local Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth community, according to a news release.

The gift will help support the physical well-being of the seven nuns who live in a convent on the grounds of Christus Mother Frances Hospital-Tyler and who attend to the spiritual and emotional needs of the patients and staff.

“We have created the type of firm where every team member is dedicated to helping others,” said Martin Walker co-founding attorney Reid Martin. “Knowing the good work the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth are doing at the hospital, we wanted to find a way to repay them for their selfless acts of kindness and compassion.”

Firm co-founder Jack Walker said the sisters requested an exercise bike to use in their free time and the firm fulfilled that request, presenting the gift last month.

The Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth is an international Roman Catholic congregation of vowed religious women dedicated to serving families through active ministry, according to the news release.

The U.S. province of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth has 230 sisters serving in nine states including Texas. Sister Malgorzata “Margo” Majszczyk and Sister Irene Asztemborska lead the Tyler community.
