Making the merciful love of Christ visible

Healing His Heart

Healthcare

In the spirit of Mother M. Anselma, we spend ourselves for the sake of others and, in this way, give witness to the value of life, which can be taken for granted in our present society.  To care for others, especially those who are sick, always entails a gift of self. We not only care for our patients and residents, we participate in their suffering through our work.

Our Sisters continue to serve in the healthcare apostolate at Saint Anthony's Health Center in Alton, Illinois and at Mother of Good Counsel Home in St. Louis, Missouri.  We see serving in Catholic health care as vital in our day.  May God continue to bless the work He has entrusted to us that we may continue to “See in the sick our Lord Himself.”

Saint Anthony's Health Center (Alton, Il)

In 1925 in Alton, Illinois, our Sisters first began working at what is now Saint Anthony's Health Center caring for the sick.  Now our Sisters serve in pastoral care, nursing, and administration in the hospital.
