They walked to the front, most wearing their crisp white uniforms, to receive their blessing and pray. They held hands, spoke their words softly and walked quietly back to their seats.
Taylor Regional Hospital's second annual community-wide Blessing of the Hands ceremony was Monday night at Campbellsville University's Ransdell Chapel.
The community-wide ceremony began last year, with this year's hosted in memory of the late Bonnie Ford.
Ford, who died 10 years ago, was a certified registered nurse anesthetist at TRH.
