Our home started with a brick and a prayer in 1901, as did our 2011 Commemorative Brick Campaign that was just recently completed. As we commemorated the history of our home and the privilege of serving the elderly needy of San Francisco for the last 110 years, we were moved not only by the support and generosity of our community, but also by the number of people who shared a history with St. Anne’s Home and the Little Sisters of the Poor.
On June 9, 2012, our chaplain, Fr. Martin, presided over our Mass and the dedication ceremony of the St. Jeanne Jugan Legacy Plaza, where over 150 members of our St. Anne’s family were able to view their bricks and their permanent place in our history. Thank you to all for your support and helping us to continue our legacy of care.
