We Are Family
empowering families through childcare, senior care, home repairs + intergenerational programming
Our Mission and Values Statements below reflect the basis for the care we provide and our deep commitment to families. As we make decisions each day, our focus is on the whole family—the one of origin and the one we find ourselves immersed in each day.
In the spirit of Frances Siedliska, Blessed Mary of Jesus the Good Shepherd, the mission of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth continues to be lived out in our Sisters, our directors, senior care staff, childcare employees, and all who serve on our campus. I invite you to stop by and visit. I would love to meet you and share with you all of the wonderful works God is allowing to happen as we strive to “enrich our world” with the spirit of the Holy Family of Nazareth.
May God always bless you and your family.
–Sister Dorothy M. Pawlus, CSFN
Executive Director, Community at Holy Family Manor
THE MISSION OF THE COMMUNITY AT HOLY FAMILY MANOR, IN THE TRADITION OF THE SISTERS OF THE HOLY FAMILY OF NAZARETH, IS TO PROVIDE ESSENTIAL SUPPORT SERVICES TO EMPOWER AND ENCOURAGE THE FAMILIES WE SERVE TO FULFILL THEIR ROLE IN CHURCH AND SOCIETY.
Our mission is expressed in three core service areas of Childcare, Senior Care, and Home Repairs with a specialty focus on Intergenerational Programming. All have been shaped by a family-focused perspective and reflect the values of the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth. Our history and our unfolding future are blessed with love, endurance, and a strong community of engaged leaders, service recipients, and supporters. We invite you to learn more as you explore our website, or give us a call to plan a visit.
Essential Values Instilled by the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth
FAITHFUL LISTENING: A way to claim and celebrate your identity in life and ministry; a way to hear the voices (new and old) within our hearts and within our world as a call to growth and development; a way to let God’s Spirit overshadow us and our ministry for mission.
LOVING RELATIONSHIPS: “Love” is the very heart of Nazareth, modeled on the relationship among Father, Son and Spirit in the Trinity and among Jesus, Mary and Joseph in the Holy Family. The selfless, life-giving love of an infinitely generous God compels us to form loving, compassionate and reverential relationships in our personal and professional lives. Since the family is the first school of love, we are committed to the strengthening of family life in whatever ways we are able.
RECOGNIZING GOD IN THE EVERYDAY: We are building God’s reign of love in our world, step by step, moment by moment, here, in this place. The people we encounter are the sons and daughters of God. We must know and understand that. The more we recognize that God is in the daily, the more compassionate and caring we will be. We will act from a transformed consciousness.
