The Marie Rose Chapel is named after the foundress of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, also known as “Mother Rose.” This small, meditative, chapel is filled with original art from artist Sr. Mary Noreen, SNJM, holds the blessed sacrament and has one solid wall of windows which focus the eye outward toward another art installment containing words from sacred scripture. This chapel is a house of prayer and is open to all who seek rest for their soul.
The Healing Garden improves accessibility, provides group activity space, private conversation areas, shade, and irrigation to the courtyard surrounded by the Caritas, Villa Maria, and Friendship Place homes.

The garden incorporates all five senses and encourages engagement with nature.
