The Villas at St. Therese was established by the Catholic Diocese of Columbus to provide independent and assisted living housing for elderly residents of the Columbus area in 1998. United in service with their mission to the elderly, an agreement with the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm to provide management services began at that same time. The Independent Living side provides 75 apartments with one or two bedrooms. The Assisted Living can accommodate 50 residents in studio apartments with kitchenettes.
In late 2015 the Carmelite Sisters took over Sponsorship of The Villas at St. Therese from the Diocese and because of its proximity to Mother Angeline McCrory Manor began to share and expand Mission services between the facilities on one campus! As Mother Angeline herself reminds us “We must not go to heaven alone!”
