A Legacy of Loving to Care

Saint Mary's Home of Erie began its legacy of caring in 1884 when the Sisters of St. Joseph of Northwestern Pennsylvania founded a home for the elderly on the East side of Erie. Serving Erie County for 130 years, Saint Mary's offers a faith-based approach to care and an enduring dedication to fostering a loving, caring community.

Our Mission

Founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph and operated in the Catholic tradition Saint Mary’s Home of Erie is committed to an environment of loving to care where primarily seniors, their families, staff and volunteers participate in fostering an atmosphere of community.

Our Vision

Saint Mary’s Home of Erie, through partnership, networking, and referrals will be a principal enabler to primarily seniors in the Erie Community aiding them in living their lives in a respectful, dignified and fulfilled manner.
