Carmelite Sister who began St. Margaret Hall decreed venerable
July 13, 2012
Mother Angeline Teresa, O.Carm. opened St. Margaret Hall on Madison Road in 1962 to provide a professional homelike Residence for the aged of Cincinnati who needed nursing care. St. Margaret Hall presently provides Residential, Skilled Nursing, Rehabilitative Services, Respite, Palliative and Hospice Care.
Today, 50 years later, Pope Benedict XVI decreed on June 28, 2012 that she be called Venerable because of her deep Faith, Hope and Love. Mother Angeline Teresa recognized the “Gift of Aging” and promoted the “Sanctity of Life” at all stages. She is the foundress of the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm, and frequently visited Cincinnati.
Known for her gentle determination and keen foresight, she recognized the “Living God” in each person and laid the ground work for what today we call “person-centered care.”
St. Margaret Hall celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year with special activities planned for September.
