Coronavirus Precautions Continue at Villa Maria Community Center

The HM Leadership Team continues to monitor the information about COVID-19 according to protocols suggested by the federal government, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and state and local agencies.

The Villa Maria Campus is closed to all guests until further notice in order to protect the health and well-being of our sister residents. Included in the closure are all areas of the main building: Magnificat Chapel, the sisters’ living spaces, the dining room, meeting rooms, and the swimming pool. Villa Maria Education and Spirituality Center (VMESC), located on the Villa Maria Campus, resumed some small group programming in early September 2020. Please visit vmesc.org for more details.

We appreciate your kind understanding and your help in keeping our sisters healthy, and we hope to see you back at the Villa once the risks have passed.

For more information on COVID-19, please see the CDC guidelines at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html


We share in Jesus’ mission of bringing more abundant life to God’s people, especially to those who are poor, by announcing the liberating message of the gospel and by the witness of our lives.
