For many seniors, spirituality is key to vitality in aging. Mother of Good Counsel Home provides a wide range of liturgical services and pastoral care options to residents that are rooted in the Catholic faith yet inclusive of many faiths.
The Home is blessed with the willingness and readiness of many priests of the Archdiocese, Jesuit and Vincentian communities to celebrate Mass with the Mother of Good Counsel Home community. Mass is offered for residents, families and Sisters twice daily, seven days a week.
