National Catholic Health Care Week ~ October 6 – 12, 2019
Catholic Health Care
a ministry | a mission | a movement
National Catholic Health Care Week is a celebration of our unwavering commitment to serve Canadians, journeying with people throughout their lives, and offering healing in body, mind, and spirit.
We have cared for people in small towns and urban centres for 400 years. Catholic women of faith laid the foundation for today’s health system. They were driven by audacious bravery, steadfast belief in the sacredness of each person, and unshakeable willingness to offer love and hope.
Catholic health care starts with a spiritual purpose: a deep-rooted calling to serve everyone and to come to each other with vulnerability.
Today, Catholic health care is flourishing. We continue the legacy of the Sisters, working closely with funders and partners to be responsive to the changing and growing needs of individuals and families across the country. We are leaders and advocates, making the health system stronger.
We may be 400 years old, but we’ve only just begun.
