Caring for Community: Focus on Faith

About the Campaign

You can Help

To fulfill Avera Prince of Peace's potential for future generations, our community of supporters, friends, partners and businesses need to continue leading the way.

By giving to the Avera Prince of Peace endowment, our supporters help us more fully realize the mission of Avera Prince of Peace

Make a Gift

Thanks to gifts from loyal supporters like you, the new Avera Prince of Peace opened in the spring of 2015 and has been serving the health care needs of the aging population. 

Through generous gifts of more than $3 million, our mission to provide the best quality care continues to support the community and future dollars remain a priority to ensure the highest level of care be delivered for future generations.

Thanks to local community partners, businesses and individuals for serving the aging population and their families with dignity, compassion and a continuum of quality care. 

Key Facility Enhancements:

  • private bedrooms and bathrooms
  • expanded chapel
  • deli and other services in "main street" setting
  • lounge
  • community spaces

Our Focus on Faith

As a faith-based facility, the need for a new, centrally located chapel was a priority. To fulfill this need, the Focus on Faith: Campaign for the Sacred Heart Chapel was launched to honor longtime supporter Jeremiah Murphy. The new chapel, dedicated in Murphy's honor, was made possible thanks to a matching gift and many generous donors.

Benefits of Sacred Heart Chapel:

  • additional space to accommodate more residents and families
  • daily mass and non-denominational church services each week
  • new, centralized campus location with easy access from both Avera Prince of Peace and Dougherty Hospice House
