(or your local hospital)

This message is primarily for those in the Tucson area, but those outside Tucson may be able to adapt the suggestion below.

I am aware that there are individuals and groups in our parishes that are anxious to perform a good work of charity--to be of real help to someone in need in these challenging times. The Pastoral Care Department at St. Mary’s and St. Joseph’s Hospitals in Tucson has reached out to us with an option you may find helpful. If any of the suggestions below interest you or any of your parishioners you should feel free to contact the hospitals as indicated below. Also, if you have a Catholic School you may wish to share this with your Principal.  
May God bless you.
+Edward J. Weisenburger.

Your help is needed!:
We received an urgent request for help from St. Mary's and St. Joseph's Hospitals. The COVID-19 crisis has hit their staffs extremely hard. The grueling work of caring for so many extremely sick patients has left them physically, emotionally, and spiritually exhausted. You can help! Here are a few ideas.

PRAY. Pray that God protects them as they work, for healing of their patients, for the health of their families, and for an end to the pandemic.
Ask your students, children and grandchildren to make colorful posters (of any size) thanking the cleaning crew, cafeteria workers, ward clerks, respiratory technicians, transportation personnel, doctors, nurses and the entire staff for their hard work and dedication – the encouragement will do wonders for them.

Write thank you cards and notes of appreciation to the same group of people.

Give or collect donations and/or gift certificates for restaurants or grocery stores who can deliver food and/or meals to a specific ward or unit (the medical, emergency and intensive care units have been hit especially hard.)

Have your local pizza place deliver pizza to a ward or unit.

Sew or make fabric masks or donate other critical supplies such as sanitizer, medical gloves, etc.

Make care packages that include pre-packaged, individually wrapped snacks, thank you cards, encouraging notes, cute post-it notes, office supplies, etc. Be creative.

Any other items you can think of that will help them remain positive as they deal with the chaos and pain that this crisis has caused.

If you have any questions regarding the masks or other supplies, please email, Joanna Mahon at
Her telephone number is 520-872-6216.

All items can be sent to or dropped off (please call ahead in order to allow for curb-side drop-off/pick-up) in care of 
Travis Williams 
Market Manager of Spiritual Care Services at 
St. Mary’s Hospital 
1601 West St. Mary’s Road, Tucson, Arizona 85745.  

His telephone number is 520-345-9441 and his email address is 

Please call or email him if you have any questions or any ideas that you think may help. 
Thank you in advance for your prayers, generosity and compassion.
