This year’s celebration has the theme: “SJDEFI: Appreciating the Health Workers’ Work of Mercy and Compassion”
The following activities were undertaken which added color and joy to the celebration:
The highlight of the day was the Eucharistic celebration as presided by Fr. Jay-Jay Bautista where he mentioned the difficulties entailed on the daily tasks of the healthcare workers and what it makes it different from among other jobs, because healthcare workers have to see Jesus in the patients with all their pains, sufferings and endurance of their afflictions. Also, Fr. Jay-Jay stressed to all healthcare workers that there is reason why they were employed in the Hospital and challenged them to continue to be committed and show the compassionate quality care to all patients which sets apart SJDEFI Hospital healthcare workers from among others.
