The Damascus story
It was on the road to Damascus in Syria that the conversion occurred of the fiery zealot Saul.
He was heading to Damascus from Jerusalem to persecute the Christians but was moved by his great conversion to become Paul the Protector not the Persecutor.
The significance of the name is recognition of the tremendous effort St Paul had to make to change direction following his conversion on the way to Damascus.
Those who come to this Damascus Health Services have also recognised the need to change direction and hence Damascus Health Services symbolises a turning point in life’s journey for many.
