SOW Feast Day 2023

Our virtual Spirituality of Work Feast Day was held on Thursday, Sept. 14, 2023. We reflected upon how our value of Compassion connects us to a united purpose in service to our communities and one another.

As a community of CommonSpirit Health national employees, we advance our timeless mission by supporting those who deliver outstanding patient care or by providing other vital expertise so we meet our ministry’s goals. We all matter and are bound by a sacred purpose — whether we work within a hospital, from an office building or in our homes.

During this feast day we:

Considered how our value of Compassion is fundamental to the purpose of CommonSpirit.
Learned from leaders about how each came to understand their purpose in the ministry.

Identified ways that a focus on well-being can help employees contribute to our ministry and the world with a sense of purpose.

Our feast day celebration featured our Chief Technology Officer Daniel Barchi, Chief Mission Officer Tom Kopfensteiner, System Vice President of Spiritual Care LaVera Crawley, System Senior Vice President of Transformation, Innovation, and Operations Jane Weldon, and System Director of Well-Being and Benefits Engagement Melissa Reeves.
