St. Mary’s Residence was the first American ministry of the Sisters who arrived from Europe in 1913.
In 1966, the present building, capable of accommodating 152 residents, was completed. It provides a safe haven for women arriving in New York City who seek affordable housing.
Women continuing their education or beginning their professional careers are accepted. In an effort to provide services to as many young women as possible, the length of stay at St. Mary’s Residence is limited to four years.
Are you, or do you know someone that may be, interested in applying for an opening at St. Mary’s?
Message of Thanks to the Sisters
This letter of appreciation comes with much love and gratitude. St. Mary’s helped my family when we couldn’t find anywhere else for a family friend from Germany to stay.
St. Mary’s opened their doors to our dear Celina and we were able to spend several months with her in New York City while she applied for university and helped my boys after school, speaking German to them.
This would never have been
possible without the gracious spirit and open loving arms of St. Mary’s. It is times like these where I feel God more present than ever. We were so honored and blessed to have been so welcomed by you.
With eternal gratitude and love,
Liz Santini and Family
