Assumption Community to become part of Benedictine

October 2023

Assumption Community in Cold Spring, Minnesota, is becoming part of Benedictine. The senior living community will move from oversight by the Church of Saint Boniface, Cold Spring, and the Saint Cloud Diocese.

The effective date of the change is dependent on the review and approval of the Minnesota Department of Health, Benedictine said, but is not expected before Nov. 1.

Fr. LeRoy Scheierl, pastor of Saint Boniface, said in a release that because of the increasing complexity of the health care sector, "no single parish is able to adequately oversee the important health care of our senior citizens."

He added, "By transferring membership from the Church of Saint Boniface to Benedictine, we want to ensure not only the long-term care and well-being of our valuable seniors who need our special attention, but also ensure the long-term existence of our wonderful facility along with our employees."

Assumption Community includes Assumption Home, a 76-bed skilled nursing facility; Assumption Court, a 59-unit assisted living campus; Asher Haus, a 28-unit assisted living memory care building; the John Paul Apartments, a 61-unit subsidized senior apartment building; and Assumption Community Services, a Medicare-certified home health agency. The campus currently employs 153 people.
