St. Patrick’s Residence Nursing and Rehabilitation has a strong volunteer base of 250+, who come to our Home daily, weekly, monthly or for special events. The volunteers of St. Patrick's are a vital part of the work we do in helping the Carmelite Sisters care for the Aged and Infirm. Volunteers are part of the Service Family, joining the Sisters, staff, the Guild and family members to bring God’s love to the Aged. We work together towards one goal, as is stated in the Mission Statement of the Carmelite Sisters, “to clasp the hand of the Aged and give meaning to the autumn of life.”
