WATERFORD – Although the name
has changed from Lourdes Nursing
Home to Lourdes Rehabilitation and
Healthcare Center, the legacy that built
an edifice of faith and service remains

commemorate the 50th anniversary of
the Rehabilitation and Healthcare
Center will be a gala event at the Concorde Inn of Rochester Hills, 1919 Star

Mass celebrated by Msgr. John Zenz,
pastor of Holy Name Parish in
Birmingham, followed by a reception
and dinner. Honored in a special tribute will be the Dominican Sisters of
Peace – formerly called the Dominican
Sisters of Oxford – who were faithful to
their calling, took the risk to serve the
seniors of the Archdiocese of Detroit
and whose efforts were the cornerstone
of what Lourdes is today and will be in
the future.
Lourdes, 33 acres on the shores of Scott
Lake in Waterford, is home to more
than 250 seniors in four buildings: Fox

years in a row by U.S. News & World
Report, and the overall community Best
of the Best for senior living seven years
