Additional observations St. Joseph Chapel is a beautiful church with attractive artwork. The grounds are well maintained with many traditional statues located throughout. The chapel is a prominent feature on the campus, and is typically used for respectful liturgies. Mother Maria Luisa Josefa, or “Mother Luisita,” founder of the Carmelite Sisters of the Sacred Heart, established Santa Teresita in 1930. It was originally a sanatorium for women with tuberculosis and later became a hospital before becoming a “neighborhood of care” assisted living facility for the elderly.
