OUR Community

Our Lady of Wisdom was developed by sixteen religious congregations. As a unified group, the congregations were able to build a community to serve religious men and women, diocesan priests and their flock.

Their efforts transformed a spacious, tree-lined property on the Westbank of New Orleans into the centerpiece of spiritual growth for senior believers from across the Gulf South. A modern facility with staggering sun-soaked details, Our Lady of Wisdom features large event and recreation spaces, a tranquil courtyard and comfortable common areas with libraries and flat screen televisions. Wisdom’s chapel is truly a remarkable space to experience. Vaulted ceilings, arched windows and stained glass details illuminate the gracious aura of the Wisdom community.

About the Residences

Our Lady of Wisdom offers space for long-term needs requiring intermediate care. New residents are assigned beds based on their unique care requirements. We offer full rehabilitation services including physical, occupational and speech therapy and provide our residents with routine physician, dental and podiatry exam support.

Life at Our Lady of Wisdom

Our goal is to be the powerhouse of prayer for our senior community. Our Lady of Wisdom residents enjoy spiritual, personal and emotional programming. Our spiritual program honors the distinct character and devotions of each religious congregation. Celebrations of congregations’ patronal feasts and events are an integral party of daily and annual activities. Daily Mass is offered at 11:00am, and all residents, families and friends are welcome to experience Mass with us. Chaplains and Ministers of other church-affiliated groups are always welcome to visit with members of their congregations.

In addition to fostering spiritual well-being, Our Lady of Wisdom offers a wide range of other amenities including a fully-equipped hair salon where residents can spruce up their ‘dos and share stories together. Our large auditorium is the main location for many of our special events, including live music performances and seasonal soirees.

Fully-stocked with decorative items, gifts and other charming goods, the Our Lady of Wisdom gift shop has become a popular spot for residents to treat themselves and their loved ones to memorable presents.

When it comes to dining, our community has choices. We proudly offer alternative meal options for residents who observe certain diets and food preferences. All of these features aim to serve the diverse and ever-changing needs of our residents.
