Healing and Hope: A Prayer Service for Healthcare Professionals
On Wednesday, April 28, 2021 at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, Bishop Marc Trudeau presided at a Prayer Service for ALL who work in healthcare: hospital and nursing home personnel, physicians, nurses, chaplains, physical therapists, mental health caregivers, chiropractors, administration, dietary staff, registration, security, environmental services, maintenance, transport, lab workers and ALL those involved in the healthcare field.
We understand the sacrifices that have been made by them during this pandemic. We know the burdens at times have been heavy with challenging situations and isolation.
We pray in gratitude for all! May Healing and Hope take root in the hearths of ALL our healthcare professionals.

Mini Retreat Series:
Profiles in Excellence – Extraordinary Women and Men in Challenging Times
We understand it takes the work of so many caregivers to promote the common good… so whether you are in direct patient care or working with the families of these patients, in administration, spiritual care, facilities, healthcare professionals, researchers and or first responders, this mini retreat series is intended for ALL who have given so much of themselves in this time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We hope to nurture the mind, body and spirit of individuals as they watch these mini retreats which are designed to be viewed as you take a break while at work and or want to relax for a few minutes as you return to your home. May the stories of these extraordinary women and men touch your heart, mind, and soul as they speak to the challenging times they experienced in their lives, just as you are experiencing now in your own.
May this mini retreat series be a gift to you with sincere prayers and appreciation for your extraordinary and holy work.
We understand the load may be heavy and it is our hope and prayer that these Scriptural Stations of the Cross meditations will provide comfort to those who are working in the healthcare field during this time of the pandemic, knowing they are not alone. May the Holy Spirit touch the hearts and souls of those who pray with these meditations providing some moments of grace and peace.
