Mission leaders are uniquely responsible for the creation, delivery, measurement and integration of formative experiences for associates at all levels of the organization. Understanding that formation is critical to a thriving Catholic health ministry now and into the future, mission leaders are attentive to designing a variety of formation experiences — in person, digital and virtual — that build on one another and meet individuals where they are. They invite others into conversations to consider the depths of their jobs and careers as vocations and as facilitators, and they hold space for the work of the Holy Spirit in each person.
