JAMESTOWN – One of Jamestown’s largest churches are hosting a special prayer for healthcare workers this weekend.
St Luke’s Episcopal Church at 410 North Main Street celebrated the heroic actions of healthcare work at the start of the pandemic, however over a year-and-a-half later the church says they have grown weary and lost some of their appreciation.
That’s why they are hosting the special service on Sunday at 10 a.m. which will offer prayers for community health care workers and feature nurse practitioner Elizabeth Gattman as a guest preacher.
As a frontline worker, Gattman has seen the public fatigue, specifically she has noticed an uptick in beliefs that are contradicting the science. Additionally, she says people are struggling to trust or believe what she says about epidemiology, COVID, or vaccines; something the service will address.
Community members are welcome to submit the names of health care workers they would like to have prayed for by name. The community can get involved by calling the church office at (716) 483-6405 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
