Please join us as we celebrate 25 Years at Cranaleith Spiritual Center!

We hope you are able to join us for an evening of celebration at Knowlton Mansion in Philadelphia as we honor Sr. Mary Scullion, Sr. Maria DiBello, and Joyce Hadley.

On Thursday, May 16, 2024, we are hosting our 25th Anniversary Gala. We are excited to celebrate the dedication of Cranaleith staff, volunteers, and donors that have helped carry out our mission of Mercy over the years touching the lives of over 55,000 guests.
