With candle lightings, readings, prayer and song, they honored those who created Catholic Health Initiatives; those who contributed to its first ten years; and all who continue to advance the health ministry today. After the prayer services, many national offices and market-based organizations hosted luncheons or receptions for employees and guests.

“The tenth anniversary provides an opportunity for us to celebrate the way in which Catholic Health Initiatives is growing as a system while meeting the unique needs of our communities in the tradition of our foundresses,” said Kevin Lofton, president and chief executive officer of Catholic Health Initiatives. “This is a forward-looking organization, but it is important for us to revisit and reaffirm the commitment of the sisters who formed Catholic Health Initiatives to transform health care delivery and create new ministries for the promotion of healthy communities.”
