Inspired by the vision of St. Francis of Assisi and
in the tradition of the Roman Catholic Church, we extend the healing ministry
of Jesus Christ to God's people, especially those most in need. We call forth
all who serve in this healthcare ministry, to share their gifts and talents to
create a spirit of healing-with reverence and love for all of life, with
joyfulness of spirit, and with humility and justice for all those entrusted to
our care. We are, with God's help, a healing and spiritual presence for each
other and for the communities we are privileged to serve.
