Day 100: The next hundred…

Here we are – day 100!  What a journey it has been, we truly thank the thousands of you who have stopped by and shared in the stories of these past 100 years.

This final story isn’t a narrative of the past, or even the present – but more of a promise to the future: the next 100 years and beyond.  We’ve done a lot since 1912 for the people and communities of Northeast Ohio, but there is still more to do.  Throughout the year, we have adopted the Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila as a “theme” for our centennial anniversary…

Christ has no body now, but yours.

No hands, no feet on earth, but yours.

Yours are the eyes through which

Christ looks compassion into the world.

Yours are the feet

with which Christ walks to do good.

Yours are the hands

with which Christ blesses the world.


Our hands have always helped those in need, or hearts have always been open and ready to serve, and our mission is just as strong today as it was yesterday, and it will remain so tomorrow.  We are Christ here on Earth to the least among us.

We thank you for being a part of the journey in these first 100 years – we welcome you along as we enter into the next 100.  Stay tuned for more stories!
