Update

It has been just over 2 years since we organized our health cabinet. Some of our accomplishments have been organized blood pressure screenings, acquisition of an automated external defibrillator (AED) through the generous donations of our parishioners, summer walking program, impact on healthy choice food items for parish events, donations to area after school program, home visits and distribution of communion, parishioner support through providing transportation, sending greeting cards, making referrals and delivery of food to those in need. We have also arranged for educational speakers including topics related to affordable healthcare, advance directives, funeral planning, fall prevention and identity theft to name a few. We are currently in the process of compiling emergency preparedness backpacks for each religious education classroom.

Our hope is to grow through the participation of more parishioners. Perhaps you have the gift of time, cooking, sewing or other talent.
