World Day of the Sick

February 11th is the 29th World Day of the Sick. Materials have been distributed to all Catholic Health International facilities to help you celebrate this important event. In Pope Francis’ message he notes that the “pandemic has highlighted the dedication and generosity of healthcare personnel, volunteers, support staff, priests, men and women religious, all of whom have helped, treated, comforted and served so many of the sick and their families with professionalism, self-giving, responsibility and love of neighbour.” We encourage you to celebrate this special day at your facility.
