Filipino Nurses Heralds Compassionate Care

About 300 catholic nurses will gather this Saturday (September 21) to discuss issues and concerns relevant to catholic faith and caring as they hold their 2nd Local Convention. 

This was announced by Ms. Edith Rose R. Santos, the Convention Chair. Santos added that the local convention carries the theme

“Nurses: Witnesses of Faith towards Compassionate Care” 

As part of the observance of the Year of Faith, professional nurses will convene at the JSU-PSU Mariners Court, ALU Cmpd, Arellano St., Cebu City.

He has set aside a special year for Catholics throughout the world to rediscover, and share with others, the precious gift of Faith entrusted to the Church and the personal gift of faith that we have each received from God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

The program will start with a Eucharistic Celebration. Rev. Fr. Benjamin M. Trazo, the organization’s spiritual adviser will officiate the mass.

Former Regional Director of Professional Regulations Commission Region VII and CNGP Board Member, Dr. Delia Z. Mediano will elaborate the theme while Fr. Loreto Jaque of the Cebu’s Archbishop Palace will discuss “Finding sacredness and meaning in one’s work”.
