Blessing of the Hands

In honor of National Nurses’ Week and National Nursing Home Week the Chaplains from the Signature HealthCare Center’s at Cherokee Park, East Louisville, South Louisville, Glenview, Spencer County and Trimble County gathered together on Friday May 9th to circuit ride to each of these centers as a team with the purpose of honoring those who serve with the Blessing of the Hands service.  The center piece of this brief but power filled ceremony is the anointing of the hands of the participants to honor and to bless those hands for continued service; “May the work of these hands bring peace, comfort and healing to all whom they serve.”  According to feedback for those who participate in the Blessing of the Hands ceremony, this tradition of going as a team to serve both blesses those whom receive and the chaplains who serve.  We look forward to serving everyone next year!  Please enjoy pictures from the ceremony at Cherokee Park…
