Compassion. We are in the midst of our staff retreats, in which staff step away from their roles for an hour (not all at once – in scheduled sets ) to recharge around our value of compassion. Sister Valerie Sweeney, Director of Mission and Ministry, facilitated the retreat and activities; some residents and staff shared examples of how they’ve been shown compassion via a brief video. To close the retreat, residents participated by distributing blessed charms of the Holy Spirit to staff members. 

What are some examples of how you have shown or been shown compassion?
