Our Parish Nursing Mission Statement

We are a growing Catholic family, guided by our faith to meet the physical emotional, social, and spiritual needs of each person in our parish.  as parish nurses, we act as a vital link between the faith and medical communities.

The ministry is rooted in scripture, specifically Jesus’s command to “preach and heal the sick.” Luke 9:2.
