Archbishop Henry J. Mansell of Hartford celebrated Mass at and blessed Marian Heights in New Britain on Dec.18. The $14-million project converted what was formerly the motherhouse for the Daughters of Mary of the Immaculate Conception into senior housing with services; separate adult and child care facilities; offices; and accommodations for the New Britain order of women religious. “I am thanking God on my knees,” said Mother Mary Jennifer,Carroll, superior general of the Daughters of Mary. “Everything has been completed the way that it was supposed to be. We feel totally blessed.” The building includes 42 apartments with amenities that are designed for elderly individuals or couples. The apartments are handicapped-accessible and offer housekeeping, transportation and other services. All 42 apartments have been rented or spoken for, and there is a waiting list. Marian Heights also houses separate day care facilities for children and adults. The child-care facility and services will begin operations after the holidays. The adult day care facility opened in November.
