Living Our Mission Week May 10 - 15, 2015

Living Our Mission Week

Living Our Mission Week is being inaugurated May 10 – 15, 2015 by the Office of Mission Integration to celebrate our mission, the depth of our heritage and caring for the community since May 15, 1848, and the meaningful contributions made to our health ministry. The theme selected for 2015 – Healing Hands • Compassionate Hearts • Called to Serve – allows multiple opportunities of engagement and celebration for our Columbia St. Mary’s community. In a special way, the inaugural Living Our Mission Week concludes with the Commissioning Prayer Service and a recommitment across Columbia St. Mary’s to our mission for 167 years.

Commissioning Prayer Service

The Commissioning Prayer Service is a public expression of our identity as a Catholic health ministry and the leadership role Travis Andersen assumes as the President and Chief Executive Officer of Columbia St. Mary’s. All gathered give witness to and support the vocation of leadership, commitment to our healing ministry, and expression of authentic community in service to others. Placed in the context of prayer, this public expression is offered through readings, time for reflection, ritual, symbols, song and celebration.  As a part of Living Our Mission Week, the Commissioning occurs in the context of our theme and the impact of our mission that spans 167 years. In a special way, we join other Ascension health ministries and associates who also mark the importance of our healing ministry and commitment to leadership through the public expression of a Commissioning.
