 At the Service of the Family for Life

It is the Carmelite Sisters’ great privilege to serve Christ through our beloved seniors with love and compassion.  They continue to courageously affirm and defend the beauty, the purpose, and the sacredness of all human life from conception to natural death.   


Santa Teresita was established in 1930 as a tuberculosis sanatorium for young women and girls.  Today, Santa Teresita serves our cherished elders, offering a continuum of care that includes assisted living and skilled nursing.  The newest addition to the campus, The Good Shepherd Cottage, opened in January 2013.
