A Message from Sister Helen Kearney

Dear Residents and Family Members of Maria Regina Residence,

I am writing to you as President of the Sisters of St. Joseph who sponsor our Maria Regina Residence. Since it first opened in 1967 as a retirement home for our sisters, we have always wanted to ensure that it would provide excellent care and comfort as these sisters faced challenges from aging and illness. Now, as a licensed skilled care facility, we are grateful to extend that same care and concern to our lay men and women residents and their families.

During this time of unprecedented challenges from the global pandemic, we are thankful to the administration and staff for their tireless dedication and professional service. Keeping families informed and continually seeking new ways to help families connect with their loved ones are on-going priorities for us. Our congregation’s mission of unity through love of God and neighbor without distinction is very tangible as all of our sisters and associates are praying for the residents, families and staff of MRR during this most difficult time. We are very aware of the pain and grief of so many who have lost a loved one during this time and pray that God’s peace will enfold all.

We will continue to encourage, support and pray for each and every one of you. Because of our faith and ongoing commitment to you, we will get through this together. We are ever mindful that you have entrusted loved ones to our care and we hold that trust sacred.

Encouraging all to hold on to hope,


Sister Helen Kearney, CSJ
