  • C. Vanessa White, MTS, DMin
  • As we journey in the words of Pope Francis and St. Francis to care for all of creation, let us be mindful that it is that Holy Spirit that gives us the power and the resilience we need to do the work of chaplaincy in today’s world. Have we allowed distractions and busyness to quench the Spirit (1Thes. 5:18) and ‘dry up our bones’ (Proverbs 17:22)? As chaplains, how can we reconnect to that Spirit that transforms, renews and gives hope for today?
  • C. Vanessa White, MTS, DMin is Assistant Professor of Spirituality and Ministry, Director of the Certificate in Pastoral Studies and the Director of the Augustus Tolton Pastoral Ministry Program at Catholic Theological Union. She is also a member of the faculty for Xavier University’s Summer Institute for Black Catholic Studies in New Orleans where she is currently the coordinator of the Elder’s Retreat, as well as adjunct faculty for the African American Ministries Certificate program at Loyola Marymount in Los Angeles. Dr. White is co-editor of the book, Songs of the Heart and Meditations of the Soul – A book of prayers, and contributing author in Liturgy and Justice published by Liturgical Press. She has published articles in Horizons, New Theology Review, The Bible Today and U.S. Catholic Magazine. She was asked by CNN News to contribute to their “Black in America” series. She has been appointed as a consultant to the USCCB Subcommittee on Certification for Ecclesial Ministry and Service which assists US bishops in reviewing and approving certification standards and procedures to be used by arch/dioceses and national organizations in the certification of specialized ecclesial ministers.

  • Mary Elizabeth Allen, MS, OTR, BCC Chaplain St. Mary's Hospital / SMMHC Madison, WI
  • Susan Leet, MAPS Chaplain St. Mary's Hospital / SMMHC Madison, WI
  • We know the importance of Spirit in patient care. A patient's spirit may help or hinder healing. There is a way to check this vital sign, whether the patient is in good spirits or feeling low. The questions elicit answers we can all connect with whether or not we have a faith background. The tool also grants a referral to the chaplain as well as increasing scores assessing the spiritual and emotional needs on the hospital survey.
  • As a result of this workshop, participants will: 1. Learn how to access Spirit. 2. Learn the role of Spirit in health, healthcare, and life. 3. Learn how to use spiritual assessment as a screen for chaplain referrals in an acute care setting.

  • Joan L. Bieler, MS, MA Chaplain Associate Northwestern Memorial Hospital Chicago, IL
  • M. Jeanne Wirpsa, MA, BCC Staff Chaplain, Medical Ethics CoChair, Consultant Northwestern Memorial Hospital Chicago, IL
  • In the market-driven world of healthcare, chaplains sometimes struggle to maintain their work's most sacred and satisfying elements. Using input from chaplains, educators and social scientists, we developed a pilot project to test the efficacy of a web-based community of practice to address the need for professional development and support. Chaplains from diverse health care settings used the internet to share meaningful encounters and receive feedback on challenges faced in their daily work. The workshop will present results of this research, explore ways to improve this model, and examine other avenues chaplains might use to sustain the value of their work.
  • As a result of this workshop, participants will: 1. Explore the need for, design, and value of a web-based community of practice using evidence drawn from this innovative pilot research project. 2. Consider elements of internet site design that avoid pitfalls common to web-based communities of support while being mindful of confidentiality issues and HIPAA regulations. 3. Discuss other models that utilize the internet to foster resilience in chaplains in healthcare and other settings.

  • Amity Rees, MDiv Associate Chaplain St. Vincent Health Indianapolis, IN
  • Combining the best of the metrics tools from Mayo, Chattanooga, and Ascension Health, the chaplain team at St. Vincent Health, Indianapolis, created a daily activity tracking tool that easily converts units of service and chaplain activities to hours of productivity. The formulas also are able to create charts for a quick birds' eye view of chaplain services. The activities collected can be aggregated quickly to paint a vibrant and robust picture of chaplain activities within your organization. Directors, managers, and chaplains are able to mine and report meaningful data due to precise definitions, established units of service, and minutes attached to vital chaplain interactions.
  • As a result of this workshop, participants will: 1. Be able to utilize a daily activity tracking tool that utilizes current technology to accurately capture and report the direct and indirect services of chaplains. 2. Be able to easily gather metrics that "tell the story" of our work to administrators, leaders, chaplain teams. 3.

  • Brother Loughlan Sofield, ST, BA, MA
  • Mother Teresa declared, “We are not called to success: we are called to faithfulness.” The implication is that we will fail often. The challenge is to be resilient, pick ourselves up, and resume the journey.

This presentation will explore these four elements and their implications for chaplains.
