St Elizabeth's Centre
‘The daughters of the Cross will never separate the love of God from the love of people’ (Constitution 5)
This short statement from the constitutions of the Daughters of the Cross expressed concisely what the sisters see as their mission, the basis for their religious life as Daughters of the Cross lived out at St. Elizabeth’s Centre.
St Elizabeth’s is at the very heart of the charism of the Daughters of the Cross. In caring for vulnerable people St. Elizabeth’s specializes in the field of epilepsy, associated neurological disorders and other complex medical conditions. Set in 65 acres of parkland it comprises a Residential Special School, which now offers fifty two week provision when needed. There is also a small respite care provision to help clients in need of a break, a Further Education College and a Residential Care Home with Nursing. The centre offers twenty four hour care, nursing, therapy and education.
Our history and ethos help give St Elizabeth’s a very special character and distinctively person centred approach, encouraging and supporting everyone to ‘live life to the full’(John 10 v 10)
Although a small community each of the Sisters is involved in the Centre and a variety of ministries in the Dioceses of Westminster, Southwark and Salford.
