Today at SHC of Ormond we celebrated Ash Wednesday with Chaplain Louise and Pastor Shelia Turner from Touch of Helm Ministries. She explained why we celebrate Ash Wednesday and why we give up something during the Lent period for a sacrifice for Jesus. She talked about how he died for us on the cross for us as we put ashes on the forehead in the shape of a cross. Also, Mary Rose Hess from Prince of Peace went room to room for the residents at their bedsides.
SHC of Ormond brought in the New Year with Chaplain Louise (SHC) and Chaplain Sheila Turner (who works at New Smyrna Police Department.) They both gave Communion to our residents and staff that attended the festivities.

Another resident, Mrs. Helen, sang “Jesus Loves Me.” After the service, we all went out side and let balloons go in remembrance of all the people lost on that day 15 years ago.
