Understanding The Power of Faith

St. John's believes in providing elders and residents at all of our locations with resources to maintain their spiritual lifestyle. Rooted with a Lutheran heritage, St. John's has been providing spiritual counsel for all walks of religious life for decades. With a staff of spiritual care professionals, St. John's makes it easy for you to observe your faith as you always have. We also have regular participation from various faith community members throughout the Rochester area who visit to provide even more spiritual support.
