Kenosha, WI
St. Joseph’s Home of Our Lady of Mount Carmel

“One night, before the Feast of the Presentation of Mary on November 21, our dear Lady led me in a dream over fields and meadows to a grove of old trees…
On that same day, the uncle of a Milwaukee priest, visited us and offered to sell us his fruit and vegetable farm, in Kenosha.” But please, you will have to take old Michael into the bargain, too.”
This house was made into a convent and a Chapel and Home for the Aged that housed thirty people.” (AB p295)

The 13-acre piece of farmland that Blessed Maria Teresa purchased toward the end of 1917 became the St. Joseph’s Home for the Aged.

The large basement church on our property - St. Therese’s Shrine was the origin of the St. Therese’s Parish now located a mile away. 
This year marks 100 years of ministry in caring for the spiritual and physical needs of our elderly residents.



Today, St. Joseph’s Home and Rehabilitation Center offers skilled nursing care, a rehabilitation center and a five-story apartment complex for senior citizens.


Old age has something wonderfully attractive, when from the eyes of the old people shines forth kindness and peace, and a gentle smile plays on their lips.
(Bl. Maria Teresa of St. Joseph AB p230)
