The Gospel of Life Dwelling is a Catholic ecclesial family of consecrated and lay persons committed to Jesus as our Way, Truth, and Life. We seek holiness in daily life and strive to live the Gospel according to the spirit of St. Francis and St. Jeanne Jugan in a spirituality of communion. We live the corporal and spiritual works of mercy by accompanying frail elders with life-affirming care free of charge for the glory of God and the salvation of souls. All Gospel of Life Dwellings are under the patronage of Our Lady of Guadalupe and St. John Paul II.

The Gospel of Life Dwellings are personal care homes, sustained solely through charitable contributions, which welcome elders needing a stable home environment. Each person participates in making the house a home and contributes according to one’s possibilities. Live-in volunteers (“Lifeguards”) assure a ministry of presence in collaboration with local neighborhood volunteers, in a spirit of solidarity, support, and mutual respect. The specific mission of the Gospel of Life Disciples is to treasure people who are rich in years and accompany them with life-affirming care. Currently, the organization consists of two Gospel of Life Dwellings: St. James in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and St. Adelaide’s in Grand Prairie, Texas.

The Gospel of Life Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
