This pastoral project, “Spirituality in the Workplace in Catholic Healthcare: The
Journey Ahead... A Lesson in Living the Mission,” will detail my work as a Mission
leader with those PFS employees, their managers (my reflection team), Human
Resources and the HR representative assigned to this situation, and the locally-based
managers and staff of the Chicago-based financial services company (Accretive).
Throughout the journey, we strived to live our mission: “continuing the healing ministry
of Jesus.” Unfortunately, the PFS layoffs would become the beginning of a series of
lay-offs and one of the most difficult times in Carondelet Health Network’s history.
