October 16, 2013 - At the entrance of the new independent living apartments, the Most Rev. Edward Rice recently presided over the official blessing of the Village at Nazareth on the 16-acre campus of Nazareth Living Center.

"The addition of the Village at Nazareth campus is another step of executing our vision of providing a full continuum from independent living through skilled nursing services for our residents," Lu Westhoff, administrator of Nazareth Living Center, stated in a news release. "This is another measure the Board of Trustees has completed in our vision to offer on one campus a community that supports older adults and their families."

Blessing ceremony participants included representatives from Nazareth Living Center's ministry partners, Sister Suzanne Wesley, CSJ, Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet Province Leadership Team, and Kevin Rymanowski and Chris Boldt, Benedictine Health System.

Also speaking was John Schmerold, chair of the Nazareth Living Center's Board of Trustees.

As part of the grand opening, the Village at Nazareth welcomed current residents and family members and other invited guests to tour the three-story building with 50 apartment homes. Each apartment home has a full appliance package in the kitchen and laundry. The Village at Nazareth serves older adults who are able to live independently.

"Residents are enjoying the many social activities available here as they get acquainted with one another and their new home," stated Mary Leiber, residency counselor.

For information regarding the Village at Nazareth, contact Leiber at (314) 894-1000.

Nazareth Living Center is a Catholic, nonprofit assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing and rehabilitation community.

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet and the Benedictine Health System serve as ministry partners in providing holistic care for women and men of all faiths, races and socio-economic backgrounds. For more information, visit www.nazarethlivingcenter.com.
