St. Michael's Faith and Health Ministry aims to promote health and wellness within the parish community. The ministry will assist in the development and education of the parishioners in promoting good health and sound mind through personal responsibility. By educating and assisting parishioners in their needs, we will promote an enriched spiritual growth for the community.
Volunteer nurses and health ministers collaborate to achieve the goals of the ministry through activities such as blood pressure clinics, flu clinics, and referrals to community agencies, health fairs, personal health counseling, and education through classes or written communication in the bulletin, telephone calling and visitation.
