Devasirvatham. the presbyter in charge lead the opening prayer in the first and the second service respectively and the rest of the order of service was lead by the Staff of C S I Dr Anne Booth Mission Hospital, C S I School Of Nursing and The Bishops College Of Nursing. The whole of the congregation attended these services.
The sermon on “Healing the Broken and the Wounded” was given by our Medical Officer Dr. D. Pethuru, MD (Comm. Med). He challenged the congregation to actively participate in the healing ministry of the Diocese. Special songs were given by the Hospital choir. A small gist of the infrastructures and facilities available in our hospital and few of the clippings were presented impressively on the screen as power point presentation by the Hospital Manager Mr. P.

It was told that the hospital is financially self sufficient from August 2006 till date and the staff were given spiritual training on regular basis to cater the spiritual need of the patients.
