Why is it called the Pelican Club?
The pelican is the traditional symbol of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. Legend tells how this unique bird will feed her young with her blood when no other means of nourishment is available. The pelican, then, will give her life in order to save her children and future generations. In a similar spirit of love, the SCN Family provides care for those in need.
