Quality Catholic retirement communities include Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, Illinois, Saint Anne's Retirement Community in Columbia, Pennsylvania, and three facilities operated by Alexian Brothers Senior Ministries, according to Our Sunday Visitor. These communities emphasize access to priests, religious identity, Catholic sacraments and community life.
Our Lady of the Snows offers three levels of care: individual retirement living, an assisted living center, and a geriatric center for skilled nursing care, notes Our Sunday Visitor. Saint Anne's provides a variety of housing, including cottages, villas, apartments, personal care rooms and health center beds. Alexian Brothers facilities are located in Wisconsin, Tennessee and Missouri, and each of these provide independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing care. All of these retirement communities offer daily Mass, and at least one -- Saint Anne's -- offers morning Rosary every day. All of these emphasize the traditions and identity of the Catholic Church.
