Friday January 27 was Mission Day. It was chosen as Mission Day because it is the birthday of Sister Rosalie Cadron, the founder of the Sisters of Misericordia. The Misericordia Sisters left us a legacy, a mission that lives on today at Misericordia Health Centre. Mission Day is about celebrating and recognizing our staff and volunteers at MHC who make a difference in the lives of everyone they come in contact with each and every day. It is a day to be reminded of our “raison d’être,” our purpose and reason for being and doing what we do, in the spirit of “compassion of the heart for those in need.”
Misericordia Health Centre mission:
Misericordia Health Centre is a leading provider of specialized and long-term care programs designed to meet the needs of the aging population in accordance with the Catholic tradition of ethical and spiritual values through the legacy of the Misericordia Sisters. We serve Manitobans
through programs unique to Misericordia: Buhler Eye Care Centre, Provincial Health Contact Centre, Sleep Disorder Centre and Urgent Care Centre.
We at the Foundation are proud to support the staff and volunteers who live this mission through their caring, listening, respect and trust of patients, residents and each other. We are proud to be part of the caring tradition of Misericordia.
Violets are a symbol of Mother Rosalie and for that reason have been chosen to represent Mission Day.
