Help the parish to gain health of mind, body and spirit through education, personal communication and the linking of those in need with church, medical and community resources, in the spirit of Christian charity.
What can this ministry do for you?
The Health and Wellness Ministry provides information about parish and community healthcare resources, and encourages health promotion through periodic screenings and education related to health and wellness topics. It provides an opportunity to combine the physical body and the spiritual well being of an individual into total health care.
What are the limitations of this ministry?
The parish nurse/health minister does not diagnose illness, prescribe or supply medicine, or perform invasive procedures, i.e. giving injections, drawing blood, changing dressings. Persons in need of these procedures are referred to appropriate agencies.
The opportunities that lie ahead for this ministry are exciting! If you are interested in obtaining more information or if you have a special talent to share, please contact us at using the contact information listed on the right.
The St. Susanna Health and Wellness Ministry would like to thank the Parish Health Ministry Program of Episcopal Retirement Homes for their assistance in the formation of this ministry.
