Our Cathedral Parish Nurse E.A. Cole has been chosen as “2017 CHM Faith Community Nurse of the Year!” Norton Healthcare defines a Parish Nurse as a “registered professional nurse who is actively licensed in a given state and who serves as a member of the staff of a faith community. The faith community nurse promotes wholeness of the faith community, its groups, families, and individual members through the practice of nursing as defined by that state's nurse practice act in jurisdiction in which the faith community nurse practices.” E.A. was chosen from the many outstanding Parish Nurses from our local community to receive this award.  E.A.’s faith filled dedication to the Cathedral, it’s ministries and community outreach, especially to those whose circumstances prevent them from being able to attend the Cathedral is an amazing gift to us.Thank you E.A. for bringing this honor to our Cathedral Parish!

May 23

Today, Don and I had arranged to meet Fr Marc-Arthur.  As it turned out, our translator got tied up so we didn't get to talk, but Father wanted us to see the Homeless feeding operation.  I think we've posted pictures in the past.  The Cathedral of the Assumption funded major repairs and painting of the building.  Donations to the Haiti Fund also subsidize the actual feeding.  It's hard to put into words the emotion of witnessing what we see.  Many of the people are crippled or blind.  As the young ladies prepared plates of rice, sauce and chicken pieces Fr Marc-Arthur handed a plate to each one.  Often making sure the blind had a grip on the plate.  Several had a container that they scraped the contents into for later consumption, but most ate everything right there.  Don motioned for me to come over to where he was standing.  there was a gentleman outside the door, crouched down scraping his dish full onto a banana leaf that he carefully folded up and put in his sack.  

 

God has blessed us just in allowing us to witness.  Can't say much more!
