Dear St. Paul Hermitage Families and Friends,
Earlier this week I mentioned that we would be having a resident, who has been ill, tested for COVID 19. I requested the test on Monday, but ISDH was not able to come out until today. They tested our resident and two staff members. I hope to have the results back tomorrow. I asked them to test the staff members because they have been out this week due to sickness. We wanted to rule out the possibility that it could be COVID 19. Our resident, who has been ill, is doing better today. Let us continue to hold in prayer all in our community and world who are sick. I will let you know when the results come in.
Today was a beautiful day. Many of our residents enjoyed spending time outdoors on our patios. It was wonderful to see them out there enjoying spring. I am attaching some pictures from our residential patio time. They have given their consent to have their pictures shared. Next week Sr. Susan is planning some patio games. Several of our residents commented that they enjoyed their time outdoors. We look forward to more patio time in the days to come.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Know that my sisters and I hold you in prayer each day. You can also join our community at Evening Prayer at 5:15 pm through Facebook live on the monastery page.
Sr. Heather Jean
