Kenilworth joins in National Day of Prayer celebration

Kenilworth Care & Rehab hosted an event last Thursday, May 1, to celebrate the National Day of Prayer.

The National Day of Prayer is held each year on the first Thursday in May. A law was enacted in 1952 formalizing observance of the day, although its origins trace back to 1775, when the first Continental Congress called for a National Day of Prayer and melding the relationship between government and the blessings of God.

This year’s theme for Signature’s third annual National Day of Prayer celebration is ‘In Defiance of Suffering.’

At Kenilworth, elders and staff members joined hands  in honor of National Prayer Day. Our Resident Council President Barbara started with the Lord’s Prayer through our facility’s intercom system, followed by submitted prayers and requests being read by Chaplain Paul.

Barbara’s Prayer:

“I ask the Father to look on all His children gathered here with Kindness and Mercy”

At Signature’s Louisville headquarters, the company recognized the National Day of Prayer with an interfaith celebration of several religions and faith traditions. Representatives from nearly a dozen religions or faiths joined to recite prayer together, signifying spiritual diversity and the importance of prayer in daily life.

“The act of unified prayer is important as a symbol of faith, but even more than that, we want this event to be actionable,” said Dianne Timmering, Vice President of Spirituality for Signature HealthCARE. “Each and every one of us suffers, in some way, maybe daily. Under this year’s theme, we want the National Day of Prayer to be a springboard for every day to be a day in defiance of suffering. We are a movement in defiance of suffering.”

The event was simulcast live to all 100 Signature nursing homes, which each hosted their own unique National Day of Prayer celebrations.

“As a faith-based company, we are proud to host an event that brings together so many spiritual groups,” said Signature President and CEO Joe Steier. “We’re glad so many could join us to celebrate this historic day.”
