Join the St. Francis Healthcare System ohana for a special Memorial Mass for St. Marianne Cope on Thursday, August 8, at 7 a.m. in the Mother Marianne Chapel on the Liliha campus. Refreshments will follow in the Spiritual Care office. The Mass is being held a day before the anniversary date of St. Marianne Cope’s death because the 10th Biennial Bioethics Conference, which is being presented by The St. Francis International Center for Healthcare Ethics, is on August 9.
The conference is also honoring St. Marianne Cope and is reaching a large, international audience. The conference topics have attracted the attention of Catholic Health World, the biweekly national publication of the Catholic Healthcare Association. Catholic Health World editor Judith VandeWater will be in Hawaii to cover the conference as well as the healthcare programs and successful business models of St. Francis Healthcare System.
