Blessing of the Hands
Each holiday season, Owensboro Health Pastoral Care offers a blessing of the hands for our team members. They visit each floor, anointing hands with oil to honor the work their hands do to make the community better.
This year, like with most things, the blessing had to adapt for COVID-19.
Instead of anointing hands directly, Pastoral Care asked team members to write the names of the healthcare workers on each floor on a hand-shaped cutout. Chaplains attached the hands to poster boards and anointed them.
Our team members are a special part of the community, not just at the holidays but year-round. Pastoral Care is here for you 24 hours a day when you need encouragement, hope or just someone to listen. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 270-417-2100.
