As a Catholic Retirement Community, The Village at Incarnate Word is proud to offer our residents many holistic opportunities to enrich their lives. We believe that as sons and daughters of God, our residents are entitled to opportunities to strengthen and improve their physical health; opportunities to maintain and expand their intellectual abilities and mental acuity; opportunities to develop new friendships to maintain and support emotional health; and most important of all opportunities to deepen our relationship with our Creator. We invite you to get involved in praying, studying and serving to continue your spiritual journey.
The Village at Incarnate Word provides four chapels for quiet prayer and reflection:
- St. Joseph’s Chapel on the second floor of Gabriel House (central to Independent and Assisted Living areas);
- an adoration chapel on the third floor of Gabriel House;
- the Jeanne DeMatel Chapel in DeMatel House (nursing and rehabilitation)
- a prayer chapel on the second floor of Angelique House (Assisted Living B). These chapels are open to all residents as areas for quiet prayer.
In addition, the Chapel of the Incarnate Word, the spiritual center for the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, is also available to residents for prayer and special events. It is adjacent to Ignatius House and directly across from CHRISTUS Heritage Hall.
Family members are welcome to join us in prayer. Annually we offer an ecumenical Day of Remembrance Service to celebrate the lives of residents and residents’ relatives who have died in the previous year. The annual National Day of Prayer and Holocaust Remembrance Day are also observed with Ecumenical Prayer Services.All services are open to all residents and family members. Ecumenical services usually are not held in one of the chapels.
