Up to now elderly and sick people are cared for in the nursing home „Little Flower Manor“ located in Darby, PA. It is still the property of the sisters, but is managed by a company.
Little Flower Manor in Darby
In the 1970s, the Sisters of the Divine Redeemer took on more special education assignments for the Mentally Retarded and for Exceptional Children. They undertook new ventures in 1976 with the opening of the Penn View Art Center under the direction of Sister M. Edith, giving art classes in this building on the grounds of the Motherhouse in Elizabeth.
By the end of the 1980s, the Sisters of the Divine Redeemer were responsible for the administration of two schools, teaching assignments in four schools, religious education in five parishes and administering in two parishes, staffing in one hospital, care of the aged and sick in two facilities, an industrial nursing position, and running an art center.
The last decade of the 20th century witnessed the start of new services provided at the Motherhouse including homeschooling and piano lessons. The sisters were, also, involved in CCD, social ministry and conducted vacation Bible school.
Closing of schools and other institutions had become common by the beginning of the 21st century. But while some doors closed, others opened. The Motherhouse continued to reach out to the community as friends and neighbors were welcomed to the Divine Redeemer Chapel for Mass and other religious services, Days of Reflection and other activities.
