National Donor Sabbath Celebration

National Donor Sabbath Celebration

November 13th, 2019- HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital will hold a special service to celebrate the National Donor Sabbath on Thursday, November 14, at 10 a.m. The service will honor organ donors, both those who have already received and those still waiting with a blessing, candle lighting, prayers, and music from the St. Mary’s Colleague Choir.  The National Donor Sabbath is a time for people across America to learn about the critical shortage of organs and tissue and to celebrate the greatest blessing of all — ­­life. Every November, leaders from various religions, donor families, transplant recipients and donation and transplantation professionals work together to educate the public about the need for the lifesaving and healing gifts passed to others through organ transplantation. They also encourage others to sign up in their state registry as organ, eye and tissue donors. Learn more about organ, eye and tissue donation and register today at LifeGoesOn.com.
