Mercy Primary Care at St. Paul Square: Formal Lease Signing, September 21, 2011

"One of the things I am most proud of is that nothing is boarded up.  It (the convent) is life-giving, and each of us has been part of an act of God in keeping the life, the ministry and the mission alive here."

- Msgr. Lewis F. Gaetano, Christ the Servant Parish

On Wednesday, September 21, 2011, Bishop George V. Murry and Mercy CEO Thomas Cecconi signed the lease turning over the St. Paul Catholic Church of Canton Convent to Mercy Medical Center to be redesigned into a primary care center offering medical and dental services to the more than 9,000 Northeast Canton families that live without access to these services.
