Judy McIntyre-an important part of our Housekeeping and Laundry staff for the past seven years-was the proud recipient of the Light of Hearts Villa Mission Award on January 4th. Judy was presented with an award plaque at a special Missioning In Service. The award is a well-deserved honor for Judy, who says that showing love and compassion to our residents is her top priority. She makes certain that she speaks with residents each day, and she takes great joy in making them feel loved, cared for, and respected. The annual Missioning In-Service is held each year in appreciation of our dedicated staff and volunteers. It includes the "Anointing of Hands" -an ancient rite recognizing those with special roles in the community. The words of anointing are: "May this oil of gladness strengthen and sustain you as you make God's love visible."
