Vision and Values

 LFM Inside 018 C


In establishing and maintaining Little Flower Manor and Saint Therese Residence, the Bishop and the clergy and lay faithful of the Diocese of Scranton see the need for facilities that provide an environment where older adults will receive the spiritual, physical, and emotional care they need for their total well-being. The Manor and the Residence are seen as places of respite and true comfort where residents and their families know that they are respected and cared for because they are children of God and worthy of His love and ours.
