The Tau, the 19th letter of the Greek alphabet, has long been recognized as a symbol of genuine hope and response in trust to the faithfulness of God. St. Francis adopted the Tau's cross symbol as his signature and used it to give his blessing.
The Tau Society recognizes individuals whose faithfulness has inspired them to include contributions to the hospital in their estate plans.
