PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT

Canterbury-on-the-Lake is fundamentally an extended family, continuing the tradition of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church Home: A ministry of compassion, an invitation to value, and to revere one another in an atmosphere of architectural and natural beauty.

It is the commitment of Canterbury-on-the-Lake to extend this policy of St. Luke’s by preserving an environment that nurtures the human spirit, where individuals can achieve or affirm independence, uniqueness and personal integrity that respects their diversity and well-being.
