The role of a parish nurse combines nursing care with ministry. I serve this faith community by fostering optimal health of body, mind, and spirit. This involves visiting those who are homebound or ill. In addition, I may offer health consultation, education, referrals and/or resources for health care needs for all ages. The parish nurse works with volunteers to provide care for our people. The second Sunday of each month is Wellness Sunday at which time the parish nurse is available to do a blood pressure check; we also incorporate the option of a personal blessing and anointing with oil following communion on Wellness Sunday.
