Charism/Values

"Our apostolate is not only to provide care in up to date homes for the aged, but as religious, it is to bring Christ to every old person under our care." - Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa, Foundress

Our values define who we are in carrying out the mission God and His Church entrusted to us:

  • Sanctity of Life - Our belief is that all life is sacred and we advocate especially on behalf of the elderly.  We are committed to witness to the gospel message of Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.  Acknowledging the importance of palliative care, our healing ministry does recognize that sickness, suffering and death are potential occasions of experiencing God.
  • Hospitality - Our belief is that each home should provide a welcoming, person-centered environment and atmosphere of a "Home".  Personal warmth, love and care will reflect and give value and purpose to the residents' lives.  The wholistic care of each resident encompasses their physical, social, psychological, emotional and spiritual needs.  Guided by our Catholic tradition, we seek to honor the spiritual journeys of all people of all faiths.
  • Shared Commitment - Our belief is that quality of care is attained by a team spirit that has a shared sense of achievement, accountability, ideas, insights and the commitment to the wise stewardship of resources.  Treating one another respectfully and justly, and joining together for our common Mission, will enable us to continue to move forward with the times.  
  • Compassion- Our belief is that each person is created in the image of God as an object of His personal love, and as such we are to bring hope, healing and comfort to all we encounter in our ministry.  In the words of Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa, we strive to be "kinder than kindness itself."
