Blessing of the Hands
From its beginning, the vocation of nursing has been recognized and understood to be a public expression of Jesus Christ’s healing work and God’s continuing presence in the world. Today, CHRISTUS Health and CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs wishes to acknowledge the sacred healing work of our nurses, physicians, caregivers and clinical leaders across the health system. In addition, we recognize and give thanks for the work of all our Associates who serve together in this ministry to improve the lives of individuals and communities so that all may experience God’s healing presence and love.
Hospital/Nurses Week events included a special reception for all nursing staff from both the hospital and clinic, a scrub fair for nursing, a picnic for all associates with Alliance Bank representatives assisting with the cooking and the serving, and the week ends with the Blessing of the Hands Ceremony.
