Rev Pedro Valdez, Chaplain
Every Sunday at 9:30 AM in one of the conference rooms at the Los Angeles County + USC Medical Center. you can have the opportunity to see the face of Jesus in the patients. can catch a glimpse of what it is like to see people living out their struggles to have patience, hope and a strong desire to live. Hope and light is revealed in these patients as on Sunday they have the opportunity to listen to the Gospel stories of Jesus’ healing ministry for the blind, the sick, and the lame, those afflicted with leprosy, the orphan, the needy and all who suffer.
The Sunday Celebration of the Holy Eucharist at the Los Angeles County + USC Medical Center could not happen without the assistance of our many dedicated volunteers. come to volunteer with us from numerous parishes in the Los Angeles Archdiocese. volunteer is named “Fidelina,”and she practices what her name indicates. “faithfully” arises at 5:00AM and takes a bus from Canoga Park and then transfers to another bus that transports her to the Los Angeles County + USC Medical Center. her life and ongoing compassionate presence reveals that she has been a true faithful woman. 20 years she has used this mode of transportation to facilitate her assisting at the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist. her faithful and compassionate ministry, she has demonstrated that spirituality and healthcare indeed go together.
On behalf of the St Camillus Center for Spiritual Care we thank all volunteers who help make possible the giving of holistic and better care to our patients.
