SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – Healthcare workers at Methodist Hospital in Stone Oak received a show of support Tuesday evening at a ‘park and pray’ event.

Dozens of cars with flashing lights in the parking lot seemed to convey a silent round of applause for the medical staff, some of whom stood at the window and waved in appreciation.

“I came to show my support for healthcare workers and to pray with others,” said Robin Gray, as she sat in her car, waiting for the conference call prayer to begin.
