Catholics in Berks County Feel at Home in Sacred Heart Villa


Home is where the heart is. For the thousands of Catholics living and aging in Reading or Berks County their faith is very personal and very important. Unfortunately for them, Sacred Heart Villa in Laureldale is one of the area’s best kept secrets for senior living. We hope now that the secret is out.

Sacred Heart Villa was formerly the St. Michael Convent. In 2003 with the vision of providing a personal care home for the Sisters and other seniors of southeastern Pennsylvania, Sacred Heart Villa opened its door to all residents. Sacred Heart Villa incorporates the spirit, love and care that have been the foundation of St. Michael Convent, the Motherhouse of the Missionary Sisters.

The community is located in a park-like setting and offers spiritual people peace and tranquility. Inside the personal care home there is a full size cathedral as beautiful as any other cathedral in the Reading area. There is daily mass for the residents and the community.

If you tour the facility you will see residents enjoying the option of attending daily mass. Others enjoy watching mass on the internal television station from their room. Almost all residents feel peace and a spiritual boost from the community that is replete with religious statues and relics important to Catholicism.

Sacred Heart Villa is still home to almost 20 sisters who are retired from mission work from all over the globe. The sisters live and mingle with lay residents, eat the same food and receive the same care as the other residents.

For a personal tour and guide to senior living in the Berks area, we invite you to contact Sacred Heart Villa for a tour and information session. You will see the care and compassion of the Missionary Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus for their residents.

Sacred Heart Villa is now accepting residents. If you are seeking care for yourself or loved one, contact Sacred Heart Villa today at 610-929-5751 for a tour. You can also visit
