April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital will be holding a “Pray for Our Children” service this coming week. The service will be held on the lawn on the east side of the hospital on Thursday, April 5th from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The event will include hospital leaders and other community members and groups who advocate for families and children. Those in attendance are asked to wear navy blue to the service because it is the color of the movement. Attendees will also help hospital colleagues tie blue ribbons on the trees and place blue pinwheels on the hospital lawn at the end of the ceremony.
