Franciscan Alliance chaplains gather for day of spiritual renewal


HAMMOND | David Lichter, who holds a doctorate of ministry degree and is executive director of the National Association of Catholic Chaplains, was among speakers at a Franciscan Alliance-wide Spiritual Care Day of Renewal for its 13 hospitals’ approximately 35 chaplains July 24 at Franciscan St. Margaret Health - Hammond.

Day of Spiritual Renewal

The program takes place regularly and is designed as a retreat and renewal effort with spiritual enrichment and recommitment as its purpose.

This year’s program celebrated the 150th anniversary of The Sisters of Saint Francis of Perpetual Adoration and addressed methods of providing spiritual care in connection with Franciscan Alliance’s recently becoming an Accountable Care Organization, which offers coordinated care among hospitals, physician practices and health care providers, with the purpose of reducing medical care costs. Later, Sister Aloysius Albert, a Franciscan St. Margaret Health chaplain, discussed the founding of the Sisters by Mother Theresia Bonzel. The day ended with a Mass and recommitment ceremony in the hospital chapel.
