What Does MiraVia Mean?
In the Latin language, MiraVia means “Miraculous Way.” The blue and gold image in our logo features a star of Bethlehem as well as the look of a compass to symbolize the guiding help provided through its residential and outreach programs. Even more, the logo includes Marian blue, royal gold and the eight-pointed star, all subtle references to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Finally, the compass-like image reminds us to follow Jesus, who is “the Way, the Truth and the Life.”Annual Reports 990
