June 2020 Vital Signs

Hello everyone,

My apologies for not getting Vital Signs out in time. Life has taken a bit of a turn for me. A little more than a week ago, I drove through the night to get to North Carolina to help care for my Daddy who was recently placed on hospice. It’s taken me a little bit of time to get into a routine with Daddy and my work. And if I’m being honest, I’m still finding my way.

I’d like to move forward and have a time of prayer and a candle meditation during our regularly scheduled last Tuesday of the month call. I’ll be sharing an adaptation of the program with you that I was recently able to be a part of through the Pittsburgh Mercy Parish Nurse & Health Ministry Program. It was a very meaningful time together. They were gracious enough to share their resource with us. This could be a wonderful experience for you to share with your groups as well.
