Franciscans Integrate the Mission Through Service

by Sister Julie Ann on September 28, 2012

On September 27-28. 2012 Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Sponsored Ministries, Inc. organized a Leadership Enrichment Program, Integrating the Mission Through Service, providing an opportunity for senior leaders from throughout the system, along with sponsor representatives to reflect on and discuss the vital topic of mission integration.

Keynote speaker, Sister Mary Haddad, senior director of sponsored services for the Catholic Health Association USA, gave two talks: Called to Serve: Impelled for Mission and  The Spirit at Work: Institutional Identity and Integrity.

Important to Franciscan enrichment programs are opportunities for prayer, interaction and celebration among FSCC member institutions. Father Richard Klingeisen presided at Eucharist in the Holy Family Memorial Chapel.

At a banquet and award ceremony on Thursday evening, Community Director Sister Louise Hembrecht and Sister Laura Wolf, President of FSCC Sponsored Ministries, Inc, honored Ron Briggs for his years of service as CEO of Franciscan Care Services, West Point, NE. Ron received a standing ovation for his commitment to the mission of Jesus. The Lord bless you, Ron.
