Not just a job, but a Ministry
At Garvey Manor, employment is seen as an extension of the Carmelite Sisters' mission, not just a job, but a Ministry . . .
"We, the employees of Garvey Manor, have been chosen to share the love of Christ with our residents. By offering our love, concern and hope to them and to each other, we show our dedication to respect the value and dignity of life. Qualify of life and qualify of care are guided by the values of the Christian faith in the Carmelite tradition.
"God has blessed us with a gift and a responsibility - a ministry of love and kinship. We are rewarded with smiles, laughter, affection, wisdom, appreciation and personal fulfillment.
"We believe our services have become a ministry, renewing us to return God's riches in the work of our hands."
"It was important to our family to have our mother in a facility where she could receive the Sacraments and attend Mass on a regular basis. The facility feels special the moment you walk in the door and after you have been there a short time you realize that it was even more than we imagined."
