Sisters of Nazareth
California, USA

We are blessed to dedicate our lives educating the young and caring for the needs of our older population in a variety of settings dotting the golden state of California in the United States of America. Many of us have traveled from Nazareth Houses throughout the world to serve here.

We live a joyful life, walking in the spirit of the first Nazareth Family, thriving with the many challenges of the 21st century.  Since our foundress began her ministry in the mid 1800s, our religious community has grown to educate the young as well as care for the aged.  It is gratifying work.

More than 150 years of exceptional care dealing with the wants and needs of the senior community, you may rest assured that we are an experienced leader caring for our aged populations. Education is another top priority, molding the characters and intellects of the young is a daunting task and one we accept with humility and ability.

We accept the challenges and promises to care for those entrusted to us. We understand the path from youth to senior years and the support necessary to make the journey because we work and play among you.  We vow to provide our seniors with a way to lead happy, self-directed lives in a supportive community -- one that offers good value, spiritual comfort, peace of mind, and holistic care, in surroundings sensitive to senior living.

A final thought, we do not build Nazareth Houses solely for the spiritual and holistic support of our residents, but also as a house where we ourselves choose to live -- now and in our elder years.  We have set a standard for operating excellence and value, to provide an environment where all community members – seniors, families, employees, and supporters -- learn, grow, live well, and support one another.

In Christ,


The Sisters of Nazareth
