As we continue to pray for our essential workers, it turned out to be a beautiful afternoon on Tuesday, November 24th, 2020. As the sun set over the horizon, vehicles started pulling into the parking lot at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital. The Owls (Owensboro Women Living Socially) group hosted this 'stay in your vehicle drive-thru prayer vigil', as the coronavirus numbers continue to rise in Owensboro. Everyone stayed in their vehicles, honked and used their flashers, as hospital staff and patients looked on.

In a statement released after the prayer vigil, Brian Hamby who is the Director of Marketing for Owensboro Health, had this to say, "We can never fully express how grateful we are for the prayers, support and gestures of gratitude that our community has displayed during this unprecedented time. Healthcare professionals, both at Owensboro Health and across the region, are giving 100 percent to help our communities stand strong against this pandemic, and they are doing amazing work every day. Not only are many of our team members on the frontline treating COVID-19 patients, but countless others are working across the system to improve the health of the communities we serve. We all deeply appreciate tonight’s show of support and the ongoing encouragement people continue to show us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

"As we all know, the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19 is a team effort that takes everyone, so let’s continue to do our part. Wear a mask. Wash your hands. Practice physical distancing and keep your gatherings small. By working together, we can minimize the impact of the coronavirus and keep our communities as safe as possible.", Hamby went on to add.

Here's our conversation from the prayer vigil.

Many of our media partners were also on hand to lend support.
