Bayhealth will hold a moment of meditation or prayer for healthcare heroes, patients and the community at 1:30 p.m., every Friday for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bayhealth’s Diversity and Spirituality Committee is coordinating this with the help of its pastoral care team. All members of the community are invited to participate from their homes by taking five minutes at that time to pray or meditate on their own. This spiritual activity is designed to be respectful of all faiths and beliefs.
Out of respect for Gov. John Carney’s orders, Bayhealth employees are encouraged to participate by praying or meditating individually in their respective units, or by calling in to a central conference line where a chaplain will be offering a special prayer or meditation reading.
Hospital patients are also invited to pray or meditate on their own at the same time. The aim is to help ease stress for healthcare workers and the community as a whole, and to help everyone feel more connected and supported during these challenging times.
