Faith-based Organizations and Congregations
With deep roots and strong connections, PHS benefits from relationships that sustain our Christian ministry.
Synod of Lakes & Prairies
PHS shares a covenant relationship with the Synod of Lakes & Prairies of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The covenant recognizes the historic role of the Synod in the founding of PHS over 6 decades ago and its continued engagement through ex-officio representation on the PHS Board of Directors. Within the Synod’s 6-state boundaries are 16 presbyteries (regional church districts) and about 845 congregations engaged in worship and mission.
Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, St. Paul Province
The St. Paul Province of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet (CSJ) shares in equal ownership of Carondelet Village, located in St. Paul, MN. CSJ demonstrates a commit to continuing Jesus’ mission in the world, by responding to the needs of our time. Strength for this mission comes from fidelity to community, prayer and the practice of “sharing the heart.”
Living Hope Presbyterian Church
Dickson Hollow is a unique joint venture with Living Hope Presbyterian Church. The church is nestled within Dickson Hollow for its ministry programs and offices. The exterior of the church space incorporates stained glass windows from its previous church property, which was sold to help develop Dickson Hollow. The church shares space with the senior living community for Sunday and weekday worship services as well as other programs, performances and events.
St. Andrew's Lutheran Church
St. Andrew's Village was developed through the inspiration of St. Andrew's Lutheran Church in Mahtomedi as a shared venture with Presbyterian Homes & Services. Affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), St. Andrew’s mission is to inspire, inform, instill and involve the priesthood of believers through prayer, devotions, sharing of God's work and spreading the love of Jesus Christ.
Shepherd of the Lake Lutheran Church
Established in 1965, Shepherd of the Lake Lutheran Church, a congregation of the ELCA, joined with Presbyterian Homes & Services to build and open McKenna Crossing. Both the church building and McKenna Crossing are part of the Shepherd's Path campus. Having since sold its ownership stake to PHS, the congregation now supplies chaplaincy services to McKenna Crossing and many of the residents living there maintain ties to the congregation.
