For 56 years, the St. Charles Community has 'Celebrated Life and Embraced Seniors.'

The Covington campus on Farrell Drive is enhancing that legacy with the renovation of the original convent into a 4,000-square foot Community Center.

The new Community Center, opened March 2017, comes on the heels of the construction of 18 new cottages in an area of the campus known as 'The Village.' The new cottages welcomed their first residents in 2016.  The Community Center provides residents access to a multi-purpose facility designed to meet their social, health and wellness needs.

Amenities include state-of-the-art exercise equipment and an open gathering room with a full kitchen. There is also a community resource center, as well as a card room and lounge area for residents' use. A beautifully landscaped patio area, an outdoor deck, walking paths and upgraded outdoor lighting are other enhancements of the Community Center. The Center’s features will benefit the entire campus.

"The completion of this project has been a goal of ours for a number of years," St. Charles president/CEO Nichole Smith said. “St. Charles has brought community to seniors in a convenient, safe and friendly atmosphere.”

The Community Center is another addition to the communal spaces on the campus. The Café on Charles Street, the Country Store & Coffee Shop, the Chapel, the Gazebo and the Charleston Room are among the many other quaint spaces nestled on the campus.

“It is truly a blessing to watch St. Charles blossom into a vibrant community which allows those we serve the freedom to live fully,” Smith said. “We are thrilled to be able to add a large community space where residents and their guests can gather. We hope this Center will serve as a base for connecting with others and as a hub for activity on our campus for years to come.”

"It was a wonderful surprise seeing all that the Community Center has to offer," said Village resident Tessie McGee. “It is beautiful, offering so many new opportunities to complement our already wonderful experience at St. Charles. From the fitness center to the gathering room to the open outdoor areas, I look forward to taking advantage of these many new enhancements."
