Little Sister of the Poor supports elderly people to help them cross the threshold of the Home:  this is the apostolate of the Congregation.

The elderly person is in the foreground, while the Little Sister is in the background.  Both are walking together: the symbol of this apostolate, the heritage of Jeanne Jugan in the footsteps of Christ.

The silhouette of the house has its foundations built on a circle to evoke the universality of the mission of the Little Sisters of the Poor.  It is also a protective circle.  Its circumference becomes a door, which expresses access to a world of welcoming in charity.  The door signifies a place of passage, inviting others to enter.

"I am the gate.  Whoever enters through me will be saved"  (Jn 10:9)

On the wall of the Home are engraved the initials of Jeanne Jugan, the foundress of the Congregation of the Little Sisters f the Poor who welcomes the elderly.

The unbroken line of the design shows the continuity of the work in unity and union:
Union with the elderly, union with Christ leading to fulfilment of the whole person.

Blue signifies the path to infinity and to fidelity.
White is the absoluteness and the fulfilment of life; it is also the emblem of innocence and purity.

Our Mission is to offer the neediest elderly of every race and religion a home where they will be welcomed as Christ, cared for as family and accompanied with dignity until God calls them to himself.

We adhere at all times to the Philosophy, Ethics and Moral Law of the Catholic Church, from whom the Congregation has received its mission.
