Thank you to everyone who came to Jennings Sunday, March 12 to celebrate Founder’s Day. The event kicks off a special week: the 75th anniversary of our organization thanks to the vision of our founder, Monsignor Gilbert Patrick Jennings. We gathered for Mass, followed by a delicious brunch, and we were delighted to share it with residents, staff, families and friends.

President and CEO Allison Q. Salopeck began her speech by acknowledging Sister Margaret Mary, who also celebrates her 75th year as an original member of the Sisters of the Holy Spirit. Allison shared some of Jennings’ milestones from the last year, including the growth of Jennings Hospice, the introduction of Jennings Home Care, and the implementation of innovative practices and technology.
