In this video presentation titled "Called to Serve:
Guided by Tradition," Sr. Mary Haddad, RSM, MSW, MBA, senior director of sponsor
services at the Catholic Health Association, shares insights into the "call" and
its connection to doing work in developing countries, and how it is a part of
Catholic health care's tradition and an important part of the ministry in the
United States. It also highlights the need for cultural competence and
partnering rather than leading to learn the real needs of a community and serve
those needs appropriately. The video, less than 12 minutes in length, and an
accompanying two-page Facilitation Guide, create a valuable tool for individual
and small and large group formation as well as discussion generation.
Additionally, it is appropriate for board, sponsor and executive leadership team
development as well as orientation for staff members. Please be sure to share
the presentation with all those persons who have served, are interested in or
are undertaking activities in international outreach – to help engage people at
all levels of the organization about international outreach as a part of the
ministry of Catholic health care and to honor their call to serve.
