St. Ann’s Home Spirit of Renewal Campaign

Over 60 years ago Bishop Klein, along with lay leaders of the Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon and the Sisters of St. Elizabeth from Humboldt, formed a “circle of care” and promised the Saskatchewan community that quality, faith-based care would be available to them in their senior years. Their vision included:

  • providing quality housing and health care for our sick and elderly;
  • recognizing the spiritual and physical integrity and dignity of each person;
  • providing care in a compassionate and loving manner;
  • affirming the spiritual and corporeal needs of St. Ann’s residents, enabling them to live in dignity with the respect and companionship of their peers.

Included in the “circle of care” is St. Ann’s Home, which after 40 years is in great need of repair. In order to ensure greater safety, privacy and comfort for their residents, the rooms in the Home require new windows, flooring, accessible bathroom renovations, and ceiling lifts for all 80 rooms. To find out more about the Spirit of Renewal Campaign and how to contribute, please contact:  Rae Sveinbjornson, Executive Director, at (306) 374-8900 ext. 223 or by e-mail at: rae.sveinbjornson@saskatoonhealthauthority.ca or Peter Martens, Campaign Chair at (306) 229-5212 or by e-mail at: Pmartens2@sasktel.net  or see: www.stannsvillage.ca/spiritofrenewal
