Beyond initial orientation, healthcare employees can benefit from ongoing formation, integration, and active involvement in the Sacred Stories and Lived Traditions that characterize their particular setting. This workshop will explore the creation of Mission Councils (groups of employees with Hearts on Fire for its mission, core values, vision, and spirituality) by one facility of a Catholic healthcare system, the development and maintenance of the Councils, and the benefits to the employees’ lived spirituality as well as to broadening the reach of the Spiritual Care and Mission Integration divisions.
As a result of this workshop, participants will:
- Learn about one healthcare system’s success in deepening and cultivating the spirituality of all levels of employees to further the work and mission of their common ministry.
- Gain an understanding of developed Mission Councils to assist in the provision of spiritual care rituals, culture-bearing, and outreach with the healthcare setting.
