Blessing of the Hands at Mayfair Manor

National Nurses Week and National Nursing Home Week were celebrated by appreciating and caring for those who daily care for so many of our dear patients through the “Blessing of the Hands” services.

I visited our facility on day and night shifts and blessed 11 nursing staff and 1 dietary lady…my “comedy routine” at other times caused one nurse to avoid the activity because she thought I was up to mischief, but she did stick around to observe!

I really feel I got a rich blessing from the experience since I had to come in on the night shift to minister to the sometimes “forgotten folk”…in fact, I brought cookies to both shifts on Friday to honor National Nurses Week, and returned to bring the night shift fresh donuts at close to midnight Saturday night in observance of Mother’s Day.

National Day of Prayer Celebrated At Mayfair Manor

The 2013 National Day of Prayer was celebrated recently at Mayfair Manor with great fanfare. After the morning exercise group, I led  the group in scripture readings from both the Old and New Testaments and then we had a local Catholic priest, a local Rabbi, and myself present a prayer each. Our event was open to anyone present in the building at that time, patients, stakeholders, and/or family members as well as our most special guest, God’s Holy Spirit!
