A Tradition of Care Continues

In 1964, the Dominican Sisters of Peace in Akron founded and staffed the Village of St. Edward in Fairlawn, OH, a senior living facility providing Christ-centered care.

Since then, there has always been at least one Dominican Sister on the staff at the facility, caring for the physical and spiritual needs of the residents and patients. This has been an important and valued ministry for our Akron Sisters. Today, Sr. Marilyn Ambrosic carries on that work as the Center’s Spiritual Care Coordinator, and Sr. Barbara Ebner also ministers there in a Spiritual Care capacity.

In March 2019, the Village of St. Edward opened a new facility in Wadsworth, OH, and Sisters from the Akron Motherhouse and community were on hand to celebrate our 50+ years of caring for Akron-area seniors. Sr. Philomena Cook, who was one of the first nurses to serve in 1964, was also there to celebrate.
