“Women of Virtue”
As women in every walk of life few of us realize the impact and the influence that we have both in our families and in society. Through our faith, our actions, and testimony of life we are called to grow in holiness. Sanctity can only be achieved by the development of human virtues and the fostering of the supernatural virtues infused in our souls at Baptism. These virtues aid us in seeking the Truth and doing the Good in every circumstance through the big and small acts of service that we perform in the everyday tasks we are called to perform according to our state of life. By learning the practical ways to develop the virtues we are lacking we will find peace, because we are doing God’s will.
The Village at Incarnate Word senior living community was established September 8, 1988 and is one of many outgrowths of the original mission that brought the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word to San Antonio in 1869. Our ministry is a work of compassion and merciful love, not duty. The Village features independent living, assisted living,memory care assisted living, extended nursing home care, in-home care and concierge services via Sisters Care at the Village and Connections, a community outreach program. Steeped in rich history and tradition, we invite you to experience The Village at Incarnate Word lifestyle.
