Critical Conversations – Spring 2013 Tour

Critical Conversations – Spring 2013 Tour           

For the second year running, CHAS is hosting ‘Critical Conversations.’ In our post-modern, secular, and multi-faith society, we experience the increasing complexity of providing faith-based health care. This conversation-style forum is set up to provide a place to espouse a confident Catholic/Christian perspective that invites a response and call to action, with great respect to other opinions, and with the wisdom to understand the grey areas. We do so by bringing our experts to the podium. Critical Conversations allows for a broader audience to engage – from our member facilities, public facilities, parishes, or community – anyone interested in a topic is invited to attend the one hour educational event. This year, the question for Critical Conversations will be: “Tell me again, why do I work here?” This conversation extends an invitation to discover the deeper meaning of ‘our work’ and how we respond to that meaning within ourselves. CHAS wishes to provide meaningful conversation right in the moment and in the space of where people do their work and provide the opportunity to recognize, affirm and promote the spirituality dimension of work as integral to the health and well-being of each person. Mission Education Coordinator for CHAS, Sandy Normand will take to the road having Critical Conversations come to most Catholic facilities in the months of April and May, 2013.
