FLORHAM PARK—For more than 86 years, the Sisters of Charity
of Saint Elizabeth have maintained a retirement ministry for their mem-
bers at Saint Anne Villa. After an in-depth study of the future retirement
needs and the ongoing demands of their mission and works, the congre-
gation decided it was no longer feasible to continue this retirement min-
istry on their own.
As of Oct. 1, the facility changed its name from Saint Anne Villa to
The Villa at Florham Park and opened applications for men and women
With the help of consultants, the Sisters of Charity explored possible
purchasers to help them maintain the best quality of long-term and as-
sisted living care of all of the sisters. It was decided the best option was
a transfer of ownership to Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey, an
organization with a similar mission.
“Lutheran Social Ministries met the sisters’ criteria on every level and
has a reputation as a very capable provider. (The organization) offers the
congregation a deep respect for the spiritual needs of the sisters in addition
to being able to provide a continuum of quality of health care,” said Sister
Rosemary Moynihan, General Superior of the Sisters of Charity.
The Sisters of Charity were founded by Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, in
the spirit of Saint Vincent de Paul and Saint Louise de Marillac, in Em-
mitsburg, MD, in 1809. In 1859, Mother Mary Xavier Mehegan founded
the New Jersey community known as the Sisters of Charity of Saint Eliz-
abeth. Today the sisters are engaged in education, health care, pastoral
and social service ministries in 19 dioceses within the United States, El
Salvador and Haiti.
