Re: Nazareth House, San Rafael – Closure

Dear Friends,

For over sixty years, Nazareth House, San Rafael has been caring for the Senior community in the Bay Area. Many wonderful men and women, clergy and religious have made Nazareth House, San Rafael their home.

Sadly, we have determined that we will no longer be able to continue our ministry at Nazareth House, San Rafael. Therefore, we must begin taking the necessary steps to close Nazareth House, San Rafael.

This decision has been made due to:

    • An ongoing shortage of qualified staff to maintain the provision of care in accordance with the Mission and Core Values of The Congregation of the Sisters of Nazareth
    • Our critical financial circumstances
    • Challenges being posed by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic

Please be assured that our other Nazareth Houses; Fresno, Los Angeles, and San Diego will conntinue.

Thank you for your support of Nazareth House through the years. We ask your prayers as move forward with this closure which will probably occur in February of 2021.

We do not know the next step on our journey; however, we do know that God will be at our side as we move forward. We pray in thanksgiving for all that has been, for all that is, and for all that is yet to come.
