Mom received excellent care at your
facility and we are grateful for all you did
on her behalf. - Family of Charlotte Emick

Early in 2015,
the Board
of Directors
who oversees the mission and
vision of The Glenn Catholic Senior
Communities, formerly St. Therese
Southwest, Inc., took on the task of
researching a name change. With
an eye toward future organizational
growth, built on the foundation of
our 28 years of faithfully serving
seniors in the southwest metro
area, St. Therese Southwest, Inc.,

changed its parent name to: “The
Glenn Catholic Senior Communities,
Inc.” Our senior housing community
currently known as St. Therese
Southwest, Hopkins will now be
known as “The Glenn Hopkins” and
its sister campus in Minnetonka
currently known as The Glenn by
St.Therese Southwest will now be
known as “The Glenn Minnetonka”.

The Glenn Minnetonka have to
offer, “Life with Spirit” became our
tagline. We will continue to provide
exceptional senior housing, support
and continuum of care services
including: Independent Living,
Assisted Living, Memory Support,
Short Term Stay, Care Suites and
Adult Day Services for Seniors 62
and better.

The new phrase that encompasses
all that The Glenn Hopkins and

I would feel good about one of my family
members living at The Glenn, and would
enjoy it myself! People care about each
other there. - Denise Werden (volunteer)
Thank you for the hard work you do and the
care you give to your residents as well as
their families! - Family of Barbara Compson
“I would be happy to talk
with you about a creative
way to honor or remember
a loved one.”

The Glenn Catholic Senior Communities, Inc. is a faith based,
non-profit organization whose mission is to create vibrant
senior living environments where people of all faiths can enjoy
the fullness of life in loving, supportive, compassionate comfort.

In 1775, the poor were displaced
from their farming villages
into Cork, Ireland looking for
employment, housing and
education for their children. 
Nano Nagle, (Presentation Sisters
Foundress) dedicated her wealth
to build schools, elderly housing
Sr. Jennifer Rausch
and vocational training. Today the
Pastoral Care
Sisters of the Presentation of the
Blessed Virgin Mary (PBVM) number 2,000 around
the world and serve the material and spiritual needs
of the poor.

In this spirit, Sister Jennifer Rausch, PBVM serves in
Pastoral Care at The Glenn Hopkins.  She along with
Sister Dolores Zieser, PBVM and Sister Janet Stelken,
PBVM, collectively served our seniors 24 years.
Sister Jennifer’s community of Dubuque, Iowa,
donated to our Benevolence Fund in their honor.
This fund parallels Nano’s vision, to care for those
in need of housing. The Benevolence Fund benefits
residents whose personal finances are no longer
sufficient to cover their housing needs.

Mary Ellen (Dunn) Welter was born on January
31, 1924 in South Dakota. She was married to Jerry
Welter for nearly 69 years and together they raised
7 children. She was blessed with 11 grandchildren
and 5 great grandchildren. She enjoyed traveling,
bowling, playing bridge, bible study and spending
quality time with family and friends.

Mary had an unwavering faith
in God. She was a member of
Immaculate Heart of Mary Church
in Minnetonka, MN. Mary’s family
requested memorials to The Glenn
Benevolence Fund. In addition, her
family donated a gorgeous piano
