Teresian House Foundation

Dear Friends of Teresian House,

As we prepare for the holy season of Christmas, we reflect on the challenges and triumphs of the past year, and look forward to God’s blessings in the year to come. The foundation of our mission …” to bring Christ to every old person under our care”, is built on the core values of the Carmelite Sisters of the Aged and Infirm: Hospitality, Shared Commitment, Compassion, and Sanctity of Life. It is our partnership with you that allows us each and every day to fulfill our mission for all the residents who make Teresian House their home.

This year our focus is on enhancing the activities offered to our residents, and so we look to you once again for support. Your year-end gift to the Teresian House Foundation Annual Appeal will help us provide meaningful, group and individualized activity programs for our residents. While our residents already have access to a wide variety of enjoyable activities, we want to expand our programs to appeal to a wide array of interests and ability levels. Studies have shown that residents who are engaged in meaningful activity experience higher levels of health, happiness, and overall well-being. Your support would enable us to create a truly person-centered activity program that would enrich our residents’ days by connecting with their unique interests and preferences.

Over the years, you have shown endless generosity for which we are forever grateful. In these difficult times when there are so many needs, Teresian House is once again asking for your financial support so that we may continue to promote the mission of the Carmelite Sisters that guides the work done here.

Warmest wishes for a blessed Christmas and may the Infant Savior fill your home with peace, and your heart with hope and love. Asking God’s blessing,

Sr. Robert Mullen, O.Carm

Our Services

Our goal is to enrich and improve the quality of life of our residents by providing them with creative programs in a controlled environment.

Teresian House is unique in that each and every room in the building is private. This is so important for healing and allowing a sense of independence for our residents.

The Carmelite Sisters
