Saints Martha and Mary Residence, a residential care facility for the elderly (RCFE), will fulfill a dream of our ever-memorable spiritual Father, Metropolitan Chrysostomos of Etna. It will address a significant need in providing assisted-living for the elderly.
The Residence is dedicated to two Saints who together exemplify the Christian virtues of action, prayer, and love of God and neighbor, and it will be founded on these profound principles. This God-pleasing labor and humble service will emphasize a lively faith, hope in the life to come, and the summit of all virtues—Christian love.
And now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
(I Corinthians 13:13)
With a nearby Monastery, Convent, Parish, and Seminary, Christian pastoral support will be available to all residents. Orthodox residents will be offered a full cycle of Divine Services and access to the Holy Mysteries.
The Saints Martha and Mary Residence will feature high-quality care and will be run by professionally trained and competent staff, drawn from our community and working closely with the local medical establishments.
Scott Valley is blessed with a vibrant Orthodox community with frequent Church feasts, Seminary lectures, and community gatherings throughout the year.
Nestled in a remote valley with epic views of the surrounding mountains, the town of Etna is an idyllic place with abundant wildlife and natural beauty.
