Cape Albeon's Spiritual Difference
We're a faith retirement community serving Valley Park and surrounding cities
Founded in 2000 on principles from the United Church of Christ (UCC), Cape Albeon embraces the UCC motto, "That they may all be one."
With our signature "extravagant welcome," every resident and every staff member will be embraced with deep appreciation for their unique differences which are respected and treasured.

Chapel & Prayer Rooms
Cape Albeon's two chapels and prayer rooms provide a place for worship, prayer, and reflection.
Active and retired UCC Ministers that support our ministry by leading services, providing friendly visits to hospitalized residents or other spiritual campus life programs may participate in an apartment rental discount program for these pastoral in-kind services. Today, there are 6 retired UCC ministers that have made Cape Albeon their home.
Highlights of Campus Spiritual Life
Rev. Le, the Spiritual Chairman reads between the lines of the scripture, creating short plays.
The residents and staff then come together to act out the stories!
This has become so popular that there is talk of taking these plays on the road to other retirement communities.
World Religion Classes
The bi-monthly World Religion Classes are also quite popular. Residents come together with the Spiritual Chairman to study the different religions of the world, going on field trips to learn more when they can.
For example, while studying Judaism, the residents went to a Jewish Temple to attend a religious service, the Holocaust Museum, and spoke to a Rabbi about Judaism.
Health and Wellness Programs
Ms. Belinda Randall, RN is the full-time Deaconess Faith Community Nurse offering optional holistic health consultation with the residents.
This service has proven beneficial and life changing. Contacts from a network of professionals are made readily available to help our residents navigate through complex medical, social and spiritual issues.
Passport To Travel
Passport to Travel is a first-of-its-kind travel program initiated by The Council for Health and Human Service Ministries (CHHSM), it allows residents at fourteen CHHSM-related senior living organizations to lodge free of charge at a sister community of their choice for up to two weeks.
Christmas Candlelight ServicesThis service is one of the residents' favorite events. During the Advent Season, The Harbor and The Villages come together to make music, read scripture, light candles wrapped in short blessings, tell the Christmas story, and partake in a meal together.
Volunteers are always mission critical to Cape Albeon. The opportunities are boundless and meaningful for residents, families and the volunteers.
