Congratulations Judy! Winner of “Making God’s Love Visible” Mission Award

Judy McIntyre—an important part of our Housekeeping and Laundry staff for the past seven years—was the proud recipient of the Light of Hearts Villa Mission Award on January 4th. Judy was presented with an award plaque at a special Missioning In Service. The award is a well-deserved honor for Judy, who says that showing love and compassion to our residents is her top priority. She makes certain that she speaks with residents each day, and she takes great joy in making them feel loved, cared for, and respected.

The annual Missioning In-Service is held each year in appreciation of our dedicated staff and volunteers. It includes the “Anointing of Hands” —an ancient rite recognizing those with special roles in the community.  The words of anointing are: "May this oil of gladness strengthen and sustain you as you make God's love visible."

 

 

Prayer

Loving and Provident God, you are the one who grants us the days of our lives and fills them with your loving care. We praise you for the many years and countless blessings that you have given. Strengthen us with the reminder that our days are in your hands and our purpose in this life comes from you. Fill our minds and hearts with thankful thoughts, pleasant memories and quiet contentment. Your grace alone is enough for us. Amen.
