Chaplain ‘gives rest to tired souls’
Sister Cynthia Prezkop, Chaplain at MercyLIFE in Philadelphia, was honored recently with the “Pride of Mercy Award,” which acknowledges employees who have a positive attitude, make a positive difference, and exemplify Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic’s mission and core values.
During the pandemic, Sister Cynthia was less visible in the centers while her work shifted to hosting telephonic spiritual groups for all centers and individual telephonic spiritual counseling for participants, caregivers, and colleagues.
“(Sister Cynthia) knows so much about each of the participants that she encounters; she receives them lovingly and openly; and gives rest to tired souls,” wrote her nominee. “ Sister Cynthia is also able to discern good news out of devastation, and allow participants and caregivers to find peace. She truly lives the values of the organization and gives of herself every day without reservation.”
