To kick off Hospital Week and Nurses Appreciation Week, 2018, the Spiritual Care department at Ogden Regional Medical Center (ORMC) hosted two Blessing of the Hands events on Monday, May 7, to bless the hands (and paws!) of the hospital's nurses, physicians, staff, volunteers, and therapy animals.
Interfaith clergy from the community were invited to participate and offer blessings. The Rev. Tim Yanni, Spiritual Care Manager at ORMC, the Rev. Susan Toone, chaplain at St. Mark's Towers, and the Rev. Nancy Groshart, deacon at the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd, represented the Episcopal Diocese of Utah at the event. Faith leaders from Methodist, Foursquare, Latter-day Saints, and Native American traditions also participated in the blessings.
