Parish Nursing

“O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console; to be understood, as to understand; to be loved, as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned.” (from the Prayer of St. Francis)

What We Do

All of us in Parish Nursing strive to support our fellow parishioners’ minds, bodies and spirits in holistic health. We support and guide parishioners in making informed decisions about their health now and in the future. We also identify community resources available to all ages in support of holistic health. Parish Nursing works in collaboration with the Caring Ministry and the Pastoral Care Ministry.
