Dear St. Paul Hermitage Families,

We have found a good rhythm with providing room service for all meals.  We have all staff involved at mealtimes to deliver and assist where needed.  The residents are in good spirits.  We have activities, social services and pastoral care visiting our residents throughout the day.  We have also provided 1:1 activity for many of our Health Care Residents.  In residential, we have had more open door visiting and Sr. Susan took around a snack cart this afternoon with treats.  Social distancing is hard, but we are trying to find ways to connect with our residents in meaningful ways and to help them to connect with one another.  Visiting across the hall has added joy to my day.  The third-floor residents have provided me with a warm welcome to my new accommodations. 

We still can assist with video chats.  We can skype, duo and facetime with families.  Since we are no longer offering group activities, we would like to offer video chat times whenever it is convenient for you.  Please call 317-786-2261 ex. 226 to arrange a time.  This is a different number then before.  We would like to divert calls for video chat away from the front desk due to high call volume.  I know we are in uncharted waters.  In our 60-year history, we have never had visitation, activity and dinning restrictions imposed on us.  It can feel overwhelming at times.  As I prayed this morning, one of my favorite Taizé songs came to me reminding to seek God in all things.  I wanted to share it with you.  May we continue to rely on God to lead us and sustain us during through these uncharted waters.


Nothing can trouble,

nothing can frighten.

Those who seek God shall 

never go wanting.

Nothing can trouble,

nothing can frighten.

God alone fills us.


If I can do anything to assist you or address concerns please e-mail me at or call me at 317-213-8430.


With Love,

Sr. Heather Jean
