Tenacre A Ministry of Christian Scientists

Man, governed by immortal Mind, is always beautiful and grand. Each succeeding year unfolds wisdom, beauty, and holiness.
(Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, 246:23)

Tenacre’s Christian Scientists-in-Residence program invites active Christian Scientists to join a community bound together by their love of Christian Science and desire to participate in Tenacre’s mission and ministry.

Rose Cottage, Shared Living is family style independent living for members of The Mother Church who are active but desire to be free from cooking and housekeeping – although there is a shared kitchen for those who enjoy participating in cooking, or who want to make a snack or grab a late breakfast.

Members of the Rose Cottage family enjoy coming and going as they please as well as joining planned activities such as Bible studies, hymn sings, shopping trips, concerts, lectures, board or card games, conversing in the living room, dining together.

Tenacre’s mission statement, “Tenacre Foundation is a Christian Science nursing ministry expressing God, Love — our mission is to heal,” is the umbrella for the ministries described on our website. They include Christian Science Nursing Department, Homecare, Tenacre School of Christian Science Nursing, Christian Scientists-in-Residence, Rose Cottage, Shared Residence, Tenacre Visitor Accommodations, and the Spiritual Resource Library.

Just as an artist-in-residence brings artistic skills to an arts community, our residents share with Tenacre their rich and varied lives spent in loving God. We cherish their prayers, insights, and sharing which provide warmth and richness to our community canvas. In return, Tenacre is committed to encouraging and supporting their natural expression of independence and spiritual growth within the Tenacre community.

Tenacre is conveniently located one hour from Philadelphia, PA and New York City. Our campus is situated in a peaceful neighborhood on 68 acres of beautifully maintained grounds with lovely wooded walking trails.

Please visit our website for services offered. We look forward to hearing from you!
