In our Parish Nurse Ministry, we conduct seminars on various

           health and wellness topics that are of interest to our parishioners.  

Across our country, and for many years, nurses and associated health care professionals are volunteering in churches to assist parishioners in improving the health of their body, mind and spirit in a preventable, proactive approach to health care.  They play a variety of roles including resource educator, counselor and advocate in their faith family.  If you are a health professional and would like to be a part of this ministry, please contact Maryjane at 203-888-2382 ext. 104
