Update: Debbie Jones, auxiliary services

Debbie Jones, auxiliary services assistant and primary contact for campus meeting scheduling, was hit by a car while crossing the street in Bethlehem on June 1, 2011.  After multiple surgeries and two weeks in St. Luke’s Hospital, she was released to return home in mid-June.  She will require additional surgery and a long period of rehabilitation but is in incredibly good spirits.

She has expressed her gratitude for the outpouring of well-wishes and concern from our DeSales Family.  Debbie and her family are still in need of prayers for healing and strength as she recuperates.

Let her know how much we miss her.  She can be reached at:
