At the center of our community, you will find the chapel. Its physical presence reminds us that at the heart of all we do is the God who loves us and invites us to live fully and joyfully in community with one another.
Opportunities for spiritual growth and worship are an integral part of our daily life. Residents can attend regularly scheduled worship services or Bible Study, sing in our choir, or join the Hand Chime Choir.
A Catholic Mass is offered each Sunday at 10:30 am and Monday through Friday at 9:00 am. An ecumenical worship service is held each Tuesday at 10:00 am.
Open to the public, please join us!
Whether you seek fellowship, guidance or quiet reflection, our Spiritual Services Team offers services and support for all. Our staff is available to offer support, guidance and prayer to residents and their families.
Please feel free to stop in the Spiritual Services office anytime during the day or call 701.237.4700.
Maintaining the Sisters legacy of caring is at the heart of bringing the BeFriender Ministry Program to Riverview. The BeFriender program trains volunteers to lend an empathetic shoulder to others through the caring presence of God without advising or solving problems. Volunteers trained through the BeFriender Ministry will visit with residents who need a friend to talk to about difficult or changing situations, including losing loved ones or illnesses.
Once a week, a group of Riverview residents gathers to discuss topics highlighted by local or national news. This Round Table, as it has come to be called, is nondenominational and welcomes a wide variety of viewpoints.
“The Round Table provides residents a chance to reflect on difficult topics and express their thoughts in a safe environment,” says Father Duane Pribula, a Catholic Champlain at Riverview who started the Round Table.
The Men’s Group started as a causal get-together in the Riverview coffee shop. The group now meets in the Social Center, but they still brew coffee and enjoy desserts. Pastor Wayne Quibell, a Chaplain at Riverview who moderates the Men’s Group, jokes that it’s a place for the male residents to “hide from the gals.”
Discussions can get heated, but it’s always good-natured and there’s always room for reminiscing.
Sindy Keller’s mother lived at Riverview and her husbands parents are current residents. When asked about the BeFriender Program, Sindy remarked:
“The Sisters and staff at Riverview are nothing short of amazing. They live each day as Gods hands and feet. Their leadership and love have made the facility what it is today. BeFriender Ministry is a crucial part of the long-term sustainability of the sense of community and support that flows from Riverview.”
