Saint Katharine Drexel opens new memory unit

Archbishop Paul S. Coakley blessed and dedicated the new Cottages at Saint Katharine’s in a visit to El Reno last week. He was assisted by Father Mark Mason, pastor of Sacred Heart Church.
The 16-unit memory care center was added to Saint Katharine’s Assisted Living Center, a 59-person retirement home that was opened in 2007 by Sacred Heart Catholic Church in partnership with the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City.

Anderson-House served as general contractor for the project, while the $2.9 million addition was designed by ADG of Oklahoma City.
Brenda Miller serves as  executive director for Saint Katharine’s.
