UPCOMING CLINIC DATES

Please call 507-329-0750 for clinic dates.

 

 

*The clinic also provides weekly follow-up care for many patients.  Please contact 507.329.2123 if interested in scheduling an appointment. Please contact Mariana at olgfreeclinic@yahoo.com if you are interested in volunteering. 

After much discussion and design work, we are pleased to present a new logo for Our Lady of Guadalupe Free Clinic.  This beautiful logo is full of imagery and meaning.

At first glance, the icon represents Our Lady of Guadalupe as a caring and loving.  A Mother who is always watching, caring and protecting. 

The signature Marian blue color depicts the color of the Virgin Mary. 

The long cloak represents the el camino – our journeys in life. Many of our patients journey a long way to arrive here in Worthington and at OLGFC.  We honor and respect each camino.

 

The stars on her cloak further identity her as Our Lady of Guadalupe (similar stars on her cloak) and also represent the Physical, Spiritual and Emotional care OLGFC offers our patients.

 

The tear drop on the left side of her cloak represent the tears and sorrows of our patients who have suffered on their journey.

 

The tear drop also represents OLGFC and our motto that says:  We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop. – Mother Teresa

WELCOME

On behalf of everyone at OLGFC, we welcome you!   It seems that God whispers in our pleasure and shouts to us in our pain.  In response to this, we the faith community in Worthington and volunteers throughout Minnesota, have heard and listened to the cry of the poor.

Star Tribune Tells Story

//

In the Sunday edition of the StarTribune 9/30/2018, columnist Jennifer Brooks tells the story of OLGFC on the front page of Section B-Local-State-Region news. The article graphically describes the pain, suffering and also the joy of the immigrant families Fr. Jim Callahan found when he arrived at St. Mary's in Worthington.
