Springfield’s “Have Faith Initiative” is holding a “Healthcare Week” calling on local people of faith to pray for healthcare workers on the front lines battling the COVID-19 outbreak.
The group is asking people to “stand in the gap” for doctors, nurses, nursing home workers, home care providers, and others who are caring for COVID-19 patients in the region.
The group is also asking local businesses to put one of five messages on their marquee signs:
- Pray for Healthcare Workers
- Thank a Healthcare Hero
- We Love Our Healthcare Heroes
- Lift Up Our Healthcare Heroes
- Celebrate Our Healthcare Heroes
The “Have Faith Initiative” is a group of Springfield and Greene County faith leaders who began meeting virtually during the COVID-19 lockdown to determine how they could best work together to meet the needs of the community during the crisis.
