Ave Maria professional staff is motivated by the motto “Caritas Christi Urget Nos.” Meaning, “The love of Christ impels us.” We are dedicated to providing personal care for the aging community in a compassionate, loving environment.
Sr. Mary Constance Petrucelli, OSF
Joining the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception and St. Joseph for the dying in 1960, Sr. Constance earned her nursing home administrator’s license in 1968. She served as the administrator for Ave Maria for 30 years. During that time she touched the lives of many in need of care, comfort and solace.
Even after her retirement, she continued to assist and provide advice regarding the day-to-day operations at Ave Maria. She mentored many people on the staff, encouraging them to pursue their education and to devote themselves to providing care for the elderly. This spirit of service to the elderly continues to thrive today at Ave Maria.
