The Annual Holiday Blessing and Interfaith Service was held in Our Lady’s Chapel on the campus of Scripps Mercy Hospital on Thursday, December 12, 2019 with the theme “God’s Mercy.”  Hosted by Scripps Health Regional Chief Executive-South Tom Gammiere, this annual service brings together members of the community along with Scripps Mercy doctors, nurses and staff to reflect on the gifts of God’s Mercy.  Reflections were shared: by Rabbi Rochelle Robins, Vice President and Dean of the Chaplaincy School, The Academy for Jewish Religion; Rev. Peter Navarra, Rector the Cathedral of Saint Joseph; Imam Taha Hassane, Director of the Islamic Center of San Diego; and Bishop Stephen M. Brunson, Senior Pastor, City of Praise Church, El Cajon, CA.  Music and inspiration were provided by the City of Praise Choir, who have become a favored feature of this prayer service.  Barbara J. Menard attended and represented the Menard Family Foundation Board.
