Appreciation of Staff December 2012

The approach of the end of the year meant a special Service in the Chapel for the gift of the Nazareth Staff and an opportunity to thank them for their care and support of residents throughout the year.

After a welcome from Manager Angela, the simple service was led by Pastoral Carer Anne, who had chosen gratitude as the theme.  Readings were done by residents Eileen and Maureen, and prayers offered for the welfare of all the staff at Nazareth. 

Nazareth candles were presented to staff members Natasha, Rachel, Maree, Debbie, and Marion. These presentations are usually made as staff complete their orientation, but this time one or two were ‘old hands’ who had missed out initially.  In her presentation Angela spoke at length of the dedication and commitment of the staff and the important part they played in residents’ lives.  She also spoke of the upcoming renovations which will inevitably cause some disruption to the life of her community early next year.

The annual Staff photograph was taken in the Chapel after the Service, and then staff enjoyed afternoon tea together while also receiving their Christmas gifts.
