STRONG CATHOLIC PRESENCE IS EVIDENT AT VIRTUA HOSPITAL IN VOORHEES, NEW JERSEY

In the Diocese of Camden, each and every day of the year, Catholic Chaplains, Associate Chaplains, and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion visit Catholics who are in hospitals and nursing homes. Their visits provide spiritual support and sacramental support to those in need. While the strength of diocesan support for our Catholic population is exceptionally strong at Virtua Hospital in Voorhees, the events of Pastor Care Week (10/22 – 10/27) added another dimension.

Deacon Anthony Cioe blesses the hands of a healthcare worker at Virtua.

On Wednesday October 25, hospital employees were invited to a prayer service that concluded with Deacon Anthony Cioe blessing the hands of all in attendance. After the service Deacon Anthony visited nurse’s stations throughout the hospital offering to bless their hands.

On Friday October 27, hospital employees were invited to a Mass of Thanksgiving with Father Glenn Hartman, chaplain at Virtua Voorhees Hospital, presiding. After Mass, refreshments were provided by the Patient Relations Department.

A sincere and heartfelt thank you to all of our volunteers.
