Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of St. Louis Center is comprised of members of the local Servants of Charity Congregation, guarantors of the Charism and mission of the Institute, who have accepted responsibility for the governing and policy-making responsibilities required under the Michigan Public Acts of 1931 and 1972 respectively. The board is deeply vested in St. Louis Center’s mission. Their presence at St. Louis Center is instrumental in creating the family spirit that lies at the heart of the mission.
