We’ve Changed Our Name

We’re pleased to announce that “The Apartment Community” is now “The Esquiline: A Life Plan Community at the Shrine.” The new name more closely reflects who and what we are: a Life Plan Community at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows.

LIVE Your Life at The Esquiline.

The Esquiline is an award-winning faith-based Life Plan Community dedicated to the pursuit of active living and wellness in body, mind and spirit in the next chapter of your life.
