Spiritual Life

Since our founding by a group of Catholic laywomen in 1913, our identity as a Catholic institution has informed and infused life here at Milwaukee Catholic Home.

Our Catholic culture is evident in all aspects of our campus. It can be seen in our Masses and sacramental life, our commitment to caring for God’s creation, and our supportive community of staff and residents. People of all faiths discover a spirit of joy, compassion, gratitude and welcome when they enter our doors.

Each of our two main campus buildings has its own chapel serving as the center of our community’s life of prayer.

St. Anne’s Chapel in The Residence building has Mass six days a week, as well as numerous other opportunities to pray together, such as daily Rosary, and seasonal devotions.  Many residents also like to stop in to the Chapel during the day for a few minutes of quiet reflection.

St. Joachim’s Chapel, located in our Health and Rehabilitation Center, hosts Masses for residents of our assisted living, rehabilitation, special care, and skilled care areas. A tranquil meditation room provides a quiet space for prayer and reflections for residents and their families.

Activities, like our annual retreat, offer our residents, staff and families an opportunity to strengthen their faith through a series of talks and guided prayer.

And of course, our pastoral care staff is here to offer prayer, counsel and support, both in times of loss and celebration.
