Description

Almost 135 years ago, two members of the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia were sent from Philadelphia to Lancaster County with two apples and $2.58 in order to minister to the health and wellbeing of the residents of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Their amazing and courageous journey led to the development of the first hospital in the Lancaster Community - St. Joseph Hospital - and ultimately to the creation of CHI St. Joseph Children's Health as we continue their legacy of caring for the children and families of our community.

What inspired the Sisters to take such risks to care for the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities that were unknown to them? What calls us as members of the Catholic Faith and as Christians to care for the poor, to be a voice for the vulnerable, to create healthier communities locally, around the country and throughout the world?

Join CHI St. Joseph Children's Health on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 6PM to explore the roots of the Catholic healthcare tradition with Dr. Carl Middlton and to hear about the amazing legacy of the Sisters who continue to give so much to our local Lancaster Community as a part of an evening celebrating of the work of CHI St. Joseph Children's Health.

This special evening at The Booking House includes dinner and fellowship. While there is no cost to attend, a suggested donation of $25 per guest is greatly appreciated.
