National Catholic Health Care Week
October 6, 2019 - October 12, 2019
National Catholic Health Care Week will be celebrated in Canada from Sunday, October 6 to Saturday, October 12.
Awaken: revealing the courageous gift of Catholic health care is a joyful celebration and a mindful call to action. We celebrate the determined, audacious women of faith who started a revolution in Canada before Canada was even a country. They laid the groundwork for what we now know as health, education and social services. Today, we continue to serve with the same core of deep-hearted desire. The courageous gift we offer—and the one we receive—is the ability to be part of one another’s humanity. Our call to action is to give voice to Catholic health care, cultivating a groundswell of stories and deepening realization of the impact of our work in Canadian society
Nationally, Catholic health care serves over 5 million Canadians each year and employs over 88,000 people. Our footprint is big. Our hearts are even bigger. And our belief that we are part of each other’s journey, there to support and transform one another, is the foundation it’s all built on.
