Welcome to The Residence at St. Peters!


Dear Friends,


Happy Holidays!

The holiday season is a time of reflection. We remain grateful for the small moments and significant occasions. We are blessed and filled with gratitude. I continue to be grateful for the privilege and honor to serve our seniors with compassion, to know them, to listen to their stories, listen to their woes, empathize with their pain, and witness their joy. Through the strength of our community and valued partners, the generous financial and emotional support we have received enables us to continue our important mission of providing an affordable and caring environment for seniors to live independently.


2023 marked our 10-year anniversary! We celebrated this monumental achievement at the Oyster and Wine Fundraising Event. The evening was filled with joy, love, and hope. I was appreciative of the efforts from all who were able to be part of this event. We had the opportunity to celebrate the life and legacy of Thomas Scifo, a volunteer and friend of The Residence. The Oradell-Emerson Rotary Club was awarded the first Thomas Scifo Volunteer Service Award. It was  a blessing to be able to honor and acknowledge all our volunteers and donors. As the new year approaches, I want to extend my heart-felt thanks and appreciation for your continued support, volunteer hours, and prayers which have contributed to another successful year. 2023 is evidence that The Residence is a special community and has greatly impacted so many people’s lives. I look forward to the next decade as we continue to make the Residence extraordinary.


With partners like you, we can continue to serve our seniors and provide compassionate care, a safe environment, quality services, and necessary programs to enrich their lives. Our goal this year is to encourage the Resident’s love for the outdoors by providing a deck expansion with improved accessibility, sun-shading provided by pergolas and sun sails. We also have plans for new and reinvigorated plantings. You can see the beautiful plans (pictured in the card). While we reflect on a blessed year, I look forward to improving the outdoor space for the residents to enjoy. For our 2023 Annual Appeal, we ask you for your support to continue building a healthy and vibrant community. Contributions can be made online at www.stpetersresidence.org/donate/ and will be gratefully received and deeply appreciated. On behalf of the Senior Residence, we wish you all the best this season and always.


Thank you for your support,

Gina Principato
Executive Director

“I love that they are next door to the school, seeing the kids and the seniors interact daily makes the Senior Residence a unique place to live, they are part of a neighborhood, I like that”.
