Christian Scientists-in-Residence

Man, governed by immortal Mind, is always beautiful and grand. Each succeeding year unfolds wisdom, beauty, and holiness.

(Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures   by Mary Baker Eddy, 246:23)


Tenacre’s Christian Scientists-in-Residence program invites active Christian Scientists to join a community bound together by their love of Christian Science and desire to participate in Tenacre’s mission and ministry.

Just as an artist-in-residence brings artistic skills to an arts community, our residents share with Tenacre their rich and varied lives spent in loving God. We cherish their prayers, insights, and sharing which provide warmth and richness to our community canvas. In return, Tenacre is committed to encouraging and supporting their natural expression of independence and spiritual growth within the Tenacre community.


The monthly rate includes utilities, weekly housekeeping visits, basic telephone, linen service, and maintenance of the grounds/buildings and Tenacre’s appliances. Additional amenities include bus service to downtown Princeton and Princeton branch church services, mail delivery, and the Spiritual Resource Library. The audio system, access to cable television, and the closed circuit Tenacre TV channel are offered at no charge.

We are happy to send further information about our independent residential cottages or, if you are in the area, show you around Tenacre and discuss with you the options for Christian Scientists-in-Residence here.


Christian Scientists-in-Residence choose accommodations in our Cottages. These well-appointed apartments (studio, one-bedroom, or two-bedrooms) include kitchen facilities, washer and dryer, and a bathroom with a shower/tub combination.
