ETHICS AND MISSION COMMITTEE
Mission Effectiveness Program (Update) – Mission Week to be Moved to Week of 09 February – During the previous years, Tea with the Sisters, Catholic Health Care Week and the Mission Week were all celebrated during the same week. In order to celebrate the Centre’s mission multiple times throughout the year, Mission week will now be moved to the week of 09 February. Some Sisters will be asked if they would be interested in being interviewed to share their life journeys. The purpose of the interviews would be to bring the mission more relevant to employees, residents, patients and visitors. St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre would like to involve the Sisters more during special events. Communicating with the Sisters through Skype or other technological devices may be a solution.
