The Mission of St. Clare Commons, a Catholic living community guided by the Gospel message, is to provide quality housing and services for elders of all faiths.


The Vision of St. Clare Commons, in association with St. John XXIII Parish, is to be the mission-driven eldercare residence and employer of choice within northwest Ohio.

Core Values

Faithful to the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi and the Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania, Ohio, St. Clare Commons promotes these core values that are applicable to personal attitudes and actions, to relationships and co-workers, and to the service rendered to others:


We believe that each person is created equal in God’s image and likeness and must be treated with respect, justice, and dignity.


We believe that each person is called to achieve full potential of mind, body, and spirit. To enable the fulfillment of that potential, we pledge to render service to all with sensitivity, compassion, and commitment.


We believe we have the responsibility to fulfill our specific role and to promote the proper utilization of the environment, of goods and services. This enables us to maintain quality relationships and care in our ministry.
