SPHI Conducts Education in the Faith Seminar

IMG_1754One of SPHI missions is to offer Christ centered excellent healthcare upholding the Bioethical principles and teachings of the Catholic Church and with this the Christian Formation Committee headed by Sr. Rosamond Marie Abadesco, SPC, Hospital Administrator, initiated the training/workshop of employees representing their respective department to be the core group for catechism. Catechism in a hospital setting is quite unique because of the nature of work and the kind of people we serve. It is therefore a requirement for employees that before they become Catechists they should undergo a training/workshop to better equip them of what is Catechism all about and how will they do it in their respective department. It was a challenge for the Administration how to start this project because this is a journey on one's faith and in order for the employees to fully grasp what is in stored for them they should first fully commit themselves in this course.Last year, the Education in the Faith Seminar formally started with the Introduction followed by series of lectures focusing on a particular topic. The group was being honed by Dr. Teresita Talamera, a professor in Theology at the De La Salle University and a graduate of Ateneo School of Theology, to become effective Catechists. Just this April 10-11, 2014 the group of employees honed to become Christian Formation held a lecture about the Doctrine. It was a fun-filled learning experience focusing on Christ’s Passion, Death, and Resurrection an expression of God's ultimate love for us. The seminar was also in time for the Lenten Season which helped remind the participants of the real meaning of Lent. As a Catholic institution, we value Christ’s teachings that is reflected in how we think, act, and love. SPHI has the mission of getting everyone in the hospital involved in spreading the Word of God. St. Paul’s Hospital does not only heal the body but as well provide nourishment in the spirit of the people entrusted to our care.
