Regina joins Catholic Senior Services

Regina Senior Living of Hastings has joined the network of Catholic Senior Services in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. CSS is a consortium of Catholic senior care providers in the archdiocese. Regina joins Benedictine Health System, Franciscan Health Community, St. Therese of New Hope, Catholic Eldercare and St. Therese Southwest.

“The mission of CSS is to coordinate and connect seniors to Catholic senior care, housing and services related to the care of body and soul throughout the archdiocese,” said Bishop Lee Piché, who chairs the CSS board. “[Regina’s] witness to quality care of both body and soul has continued since the Sisters of Charity of Our Lady, Mother of Mercy opened their doors 76 years ago.”
