Good Samaritan Hosting Second Park and Pray Event

Good Samaritan is inviting the community to take part in a special prayer event on Monday, December 7 for its healthcare workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. A Park and Pray event will be held from 6:30 to 7:00 p.m. on Monday, December 7 at Good Samaritan.

“We hosted a parking lot prayer back in April, at a time when we were not yet seeing the full impact of COVID-19 in our community,” said Tiffany Conover, Director of Marketing at Good Samaritan. “Currently, we are seeing more COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations than ever and it is taking an emotional toll on our staff. We are inviting the community to come together in prayer to show support for our frontline staff, and also to pray for our patients and their families. We are at a point where our staff really need some uplifting, and we hope this parking lot prayer will do just that.”

The Park and Pray event is a partnership with The Radio Stations of TOC Direct Media with the program airing on WZDM Wisdom 92.1 and online at wzdm.com. Participants onsite and at home are invited to tune in to the guided prayer by Good Samaritan Chaplain Trevor Murry and program­­­ at 6:30 p.m. At the conclusion of the program participants in the parking lot will be asked to spend 45 seconds honking their car horns and flashing their headlights.

Good Samaritan asks that Park and Pray participants park in the Memorial Parking in front of the main entrance of the hospital on Prairie Street or in the back of the Grouseland Parking lot on Sixth Street. Signage will be placed to guide participants where to park in these areas.

“To ensure this is a safe event, we ask that all participants remain in their vehicles,” stated Conover. “If someone does choose to exit their vehicle or walk to the event, we ask that they wear a mask and adhere to physical distancing guidelines of six feet from others.”
