Welcome (back) to Sister Rose Hoye! Sister Rose served for 12 years on the Leadership Team in London for the Congregation of the Sisters of Nazareth, but is back in California now as the American Superior for the 4 California houses (San Rafael, Fresno, Los Angeles, San Diego) and the school (San Diego). She will work closely with Barbara Anne Crowley, our Area CEO, in securing and continuing the mission and ministries of the Sisters of Nazareth in America. Sister Rose was at Nazareth House San Rafael from 2000-2006. During that time, the Auxiliary, Sisters and staff raised funds for our bocce Court, gazebo, and front lawn paths. She was part of the last renovation of the Care Center, carpeting and painting of the residential wings, installation of new dining furniture, and the painting of the murals.
She remembers fondly the outings to Deer Park Villa, the July 4 and Labor Day picnics, and the joy of everyday life in San Rafael. “This house is one of the happiest places I lived. It’s the sense of home here – I love the people and the community, and I always feel grounded here.” We hope to see her regularly here in San Rafael, gracing us with her presence and wisdom, teaching and practicing Servant Leadership, and helping to guide our 2019-2020 house renovations.
