As part of the initiative to go beyond the four walls of
the institutions students of the colleges collect old clothes and
medicines in the hospital mission office and donate them to the inmates
of the Missionaries of Charity. The home provides care to mentally
challenged patients and the response from doctors and students has been
overwhelming. Coordinated by the chaplains this has indeed been a way of
reinstating the mission of our institution and opening the eyes of
students to realities they would have otherwise ignored. Visits by a
group of Christian and non Christian students as well as faculty are
regularly organised. The outcome of this has begun a process of many
among us who have felt the need to give and reach out. Hence a proposed
mission fund for those who enter CMCH for treatment. Not just community
health but a healthy community is the objective.
The Chaplains have also been involved with the schools and other
organizations to share the Christmas devotions, conduct seminars on
Leadership, conduct retreats and ethics classes for different groups of
school students, college students and other groups in the city.
Mission Office gets in touch with the students who have completed their MBBS
as well as their Post Graduate studies. We have used the office this far as a
platform to prepare various bible studies and the ethics classes for the
medical, nursing and dental students as well as the doctors bible study. It has
also been used as a counselling room for staff and students.
Beyond health care and academic excellence, at the heart of our existence lies
our mission statement. The role of the Mission Office is thus a constant
reminder of our need to reaffirm our values and mission as an institution.
Besides a regular newsletter and being a facilitator for CMAI based seminars and
retreats for staff and students, the Mission Office is in touch with the
students serving their bond, encouraging them to complete their bond and
continue their service to CMC if possible. A number of PG students who have
joined this year are a result of that effort.
The Mission Office serves as that bridge between students, their faculty and the
staff by allowing them to reconcile, to remind them that without a shared vision
it would increase the likelihood of different individuals and groups promoting
different interests. Additionally, once students at an early age are able to be
educated and challenged about an institutional vision, they will certainly be
effective tools in future. With regular meetings and recurrent discussions with
the staff, counseling of the students, (MBBS as well as PG) and faculty, the
Office serves as a centre for reaffirming the need to share a common vision in
order that the mission be engraved in the hearts of the community members in
working towards a common goal.
The Mission Office is also involved with the publication of the Institutional
newsletter called Inside CMC
