On April 22nd, we held a Procession of Appreciation and Gratitude for all essential employees at Saint Catherine Healthcare Center—for the administration, doctors, nurses, and staff who are working around the clock to care for our residents. Twenty-two cars and approximately forty-five participants visited both the front and the back of Saint Catherine’s so that all essential employees and residents could be included (facebook video link). Sisters, associates, workers, family members, and St. Aloysius parishioners, with horns blaring, arms and signs waving, cries of “thank you,” and drums drumming, experienced two socially-distanced, graced moments as we sang the Dominican Blessing through face masks.
May God, Creator, bless you.
May God, Redeemer, heal you.
And may God, the Holy Spirit, fill you with light.
