The Story Behind Our Logo

Our logo communicates the power of faith, hope and healing found both in our Catholic Faith and our work at Catholic Health. The shape of the logo evokes two images. The first is that of a chalice and sacred host, representing the elements of Holy Communion, the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, the very heart of the Catholic Faith. As a graphic element, the chalice and host also becomes the figure of a human person, arms uplifted in a celebration of the gifts of life, health and healing, especially as these reflect the mission of Catholic Health.
