The fabric of the Carmelite Mission is woven throughout the facility which is bound together by the strength and guidance of Mother Angeline.

Many of the families have commented that in our Carmelite administered Homes “the difference is love” and this has been adopted as our slogan. The mission of Ozanam Hall, and of the Carmelite Sisters, is to provide holistic care in an atmosphere of Christian understanding and faith. The Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm, are women of the Church inspired by Mother Mary Angeline Teresa, to respond with faith, courage and love to the healing ministry of Christ.Our philosophy is steeped in the words of Mother Mary Angeline Teresa: “Our apostolate is not only to staff and operate up-to-date homes for the aged, but as religious it is to bring Christ to every person under our care. Bringing Christ means giving them His compassion, His interest, His loving care, His warmth morning, noon and night. It means inspiring the lay people who work with us, to give the same type of loving care.” -Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa McCrory, O.Carm.

The Carmelite Sisters adheres to the following values:
Our belief is that each home should provide a welcoming, person centered environment and atmosphere of a “Home”. Personal warmth, love and care will reflect and give value and purpose to the residents’ lives. The wholistic care of each resident encompasses their physical, social, psychological, emotional and spiritual needs. Guided by our Catholic tradition we seek to honor the spiritual journeys of all people of all faiths.
Sanctity of Life
Our belief is that all life is sacred, and we advocate especially on behalf of the elderly. We are committed to witness to the gospel message of Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Acknowledging the importance of palliative care, our healing ministry does recognize that sickness, suffering and death are potential occasions of experiencing God.
Our belief is that each person is created in the image of God as an object of His personal love, and as such we are to bring hope, healing and comfort to all we encounter in our ministry. In the words of Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa, we strive to be “kinder than kindness itself.”
Our belief is that quality of care is attained by a team spirit that has a shared sense of achievement, accountability, ideas, insights and the commitment to the wise stewardship of resources. Treating one another respectfully and justly, and joining together for our common Mission, will enable us to continue to move forward with the times.
