While ministering to the physical needs of our elders we also recognize the importance of ministering to the spiritual needs of all our residents.Marycrest provides:

 

  • Chapel

  • Daily recitation of the Rosary

  • Spiritual Library including variety of books, tapes, and DVD’s on a variety of topics

  • Weekly Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

“These are years to be lived with a sense of trusting abandonment into the hands of God, our provident and merciful Father. It is a time to be used creatively for deepening our spiritual life through more fervent prayer and commitment to the service of our brothers and sisters in charity.”

-St. Pope John Paul II, Letter to the Elderly
