January Charity of the Month

Zelie’s Home is named after St. Zelie, wife of St. Louis Martin and mother of St. Therese of Lisieux and eight other children. She was ordinary yet extraordinary in her motherly ways. She had a great love for her children and is a great maternal figure to emulate.

St. Zelie had some poignant quotes, one being “The good Lord does not do things by halves; He always gives what we need. Let us then carry on bravely.” This is our motto as we transition and carry on bravely for the women and children of the Cleveland area.
