“A community spirit does not just happen of itself. It flows from people who share a common tradition and strive for a common goal outside themselves.” These wise words were spoken by Blessed Mary Angela Truszkowska, foundress of the Felician Sisters. Her words are an inspiration to us all. Her vision and values shape the work of St. Anne Home and the other ministries of the Felician Sisters throughout North America. These ministries are centered around our core values of respect for human dignity, compassion, transformation, solidarity with the poor and justice and peace.
An amazing community spirit thrives when each of these values come together and are demonstrated daily by our employees. Our community spirit it evident to all who walk through our doors because we have so many good-hearted volunteers, compassionate donors, supporters, and dedicated, caring staff. Take as an example, Kathy Pastrick, a recently retired LPN, who dedicated her entire career to St. Anne Home and exemplified this spirit for over 42 years. Our goal is to ensure our values are demonstrated daily in our nursing care, rehabilitation programs, personal care and our newly added residential independent living housing with services option.
Our work is grounded in these values and I’m proud to be a part of an organization that is 100-percent committed to treating our residents with compassion and respect for human dignity. I believe that is why so many people, like you, are so passionate about the work of St. Anne Home – you wholeheartedly believe in St. Anne Home and our mission.
Without your continued support, we simply would not be able to reach so many people in need. Your prayers, contributions, and kind words truly make a difference in our ability to provide superior, quality care to our residents. I have nothing but gratitude when I think of all St. Anne Home has been able to accomplish over the past forty-eight years. I hope that as you read the other articles on our websiter, you will be encouraged by the wonderful things that are happening here and will renew your commitment to our cause.
May God bless you for all your kindness,
Jeffrey S. Long
President and CEO
