An Advent Invitation

As we prepare ourselves for the celebration of the birth of Christ, the Catholic Health Association invites you to discover the spiritual practice of hospitality as a profound, subversive act of love — where in every encounter, God's transforming presence dwells.

Each week of Advent, CHA will offer an engaging spiritual smorgasbord to encourage you to live with more intention as you practice hospitality — in your heart, your home, your workplace and your community. May you and your health care colleagues find nourishment and hope in the days ahead through our offering of prayers, scriptures and reflections, stories, recipes, podcast episodes and music.

Come, Lord Jesus, come.


Advent Zines

Amid the hustle and bustle of the weeks leading up to Christmas, we invite you to carve out a little time to discover hospitality as a spiritual practice.

Each week's zine (mini magazine) offers an array of experiences from scripture and reflections to music, stories and recipes. Find inspiration that will awaken you to more fully recognize God's presence this Advent.

Hospitality Conversations

As you enjoy your morning cup of coffee at home or on your commute, join ministry colleagues and CHA staff for warm and thoughtful conversations about expressions of hospitality from various familial and cultural experiences. May the conversations inspire you to reflect on fond memories of hospitality experienced in your family or community.
