In a ceremony to honor the professionals who offer comfort and hope to the terminally ill and dying, Hospice of the Sacred Heart conducted a special Blessing of the Hands.


The breakfast ceremony was held May 2, at Al Mia Amore in Dickson City. The hands of all Hospice of the Sacred Heart caregivers, nurses, doctors, social workers, therapists and volunteers were blessed by Rev. Genaro Aguilar, CSA and Rev. Gregory Finn, OSJ.


“We wanted to show appreciation for our whole staff and thought that the National Day of Prayer was the perfect day to hold our annual blessing of the hands,” said Diane Baldi, RN, Chief Executive Officer of Hospice of the Sacred Heart.


A non-profit agency, Hospice of the Sacred Heart serves patients in nine counties, including rural areas, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
