Thanksgiving Mission 2018

St. Gregory in Upper St. Clair, PA.

Following the Nov. 18 Divine Liturgy, St. Gregory’s children were ready for this year’s Thanksgiving Mission. To express our “thank you” we visited the Tri Community South EMS in Bethel Park, Pa.

The Tri Community South EMS is the designated ambulance service for the municipalities of Upper St Clair, Bethel Park, and South Park. The dedicated EMS workers serve approximately 65,000 residents living in the three municipalities. The service area is approximately 33.5 square miles.

Upon our arrival we were given a wonderful presentation by John and Michele D’Angelo on the job duties of EMS workers. As part of this presentation we learned how to call for an ambulance in an emergency, and also learned about personal and family safety.

Afterward, we had the opportunity to see an ambulance and EMS equipment. At the end of our visit we presented our Thanksgiving Trifold to the members of the EMS. This trifold included the patron saints of EMS workers, a special prayer, and “thank you” notes from our ECF students.

We all enjoyed the gifts we received from these dedicated men and women who serve our communities.
