Our Logo And It’s Symbolism

An appropriate understanding of the mission of SMP Health and its ministries requires that we continually acknowledge our source in the Sisters of Mary of the Presentation. Their sponsorship is never to be overlooked and we perpetuate this relationship in our logo as well as in the name of our organization.

SMP Health – St. Catherine North is a ministry of SMP Health. The abbreviation “SMP” pertains to the Sisters of Mary of the Presentation. The organization’s “official” name is the “Sisters of Mary of the Presentation Health System.”

Our ministry logo for St. Catherine North incorporates the emblem of the Sister of Mary of the Presentation to identify and perpetuate the Sisters as the source of our ministry, its mission, history and identity.

The Emblem of the Sisters of Mary of the Presentation

In 1982 the General Chapter of the Sisters of Mary of the Presentation agreed to this oval symbol as a common community symbol to indicate membership in the Congregation.

The symbolism is explained by the Sisters as follows: 

The Cross represents Jesus Christ our Savior.
The M represents Mary whose daughters we are.
The Oval signifies the Church and our Congregation.
The Cross is rooted in the earth where our lives and ministry take place.
