January marks the start of a new year, new hopes and new wishes.
Last Friday, January 10, the Hospital Ministry had their first visit for 2014 at the PGH Pediatrics Wards to give out medication we had sponsored to patients. A lot of these patients were newborns/babies, not even having the chance to be discharged from the hospital when they were born. A lot of them were already there last December, spending Christmas and New Year confined in the wards.
Our visits and sponsorship of medication always brings smiles to the patients and their parents. It is not just the availability of the medication that makes them smile, it is also our presence, the hope that we bring to them, knowing that they have not been forsaken and that there are people who remember them.
This is but one of the many sources of fulfillment for the Hospital Ministry. This would not be possible without the generosity and the presence of our parishioners.
If you would like to know more about the Hospital Ministry or join us in our activities, please feel free to contact Nimfa Dumago at 8438830 or drop by the parish office.
