A Worthy Cause of Critical Importance

The family of Saint Gianna Beretta Molla has given permission to name School of Health Sciences at the University of Mary for their mother!

Dr. Gianna Emanuela Molla, for whom Saint Gianna gave her life, was personally on campus for the university’s Candlelight Gala on All Saints' Day, November 1, 2019.

She visited Mary’s world-class School of Health Sciences, featuring:

  • 1,200+ health care students
  • 30+ top-rated academic programs (including doctorate degrees in Nursing, Physical Therapy, and Occupational Therapy)
  • 60+ professors, who were able to hear Dr. Gianna Emanuela’s testimony about her mother’s heroic and saintly witness, “for Life!”
  • The #1 Nursing Program in America in 2021 (of 2,145 programs in the nation!)

By expanding the School under the patronage of Saint Gianna, and through new programs and state-of-the-art facilities, the University of Mary will profoundly deepen our impact on the world of both Catholic and secular health care. We endeavor to be the best School of Health Sciences in America for the education of competent and compassionate health care leaders of moral courage. 

Saint Gianna and Monsignor
