This ministry provides blood pressure screenings after the first Mass on the first Sunday of each month. We also provide any necessary education during the screenings.
The health ministry at Risen Christ consists of any health professional interested in the wellbeing of the parishioners of the parish.
This ministry is under the direction of Faith Community Nurses. Faith Community Nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that focuses on the care of the spirit and the promotion of holistic health within the context of a faith community. Holistic health care consists of the health of body, mind and spirit. These nurses promote holistic health and the prevention or management of illness. They use interventions of education, counseling, prayer, presence, active listening, advocacy and referral.
The health ministry team at Risen Christ Catholic Community will engage in the following activities:
Visits to parishioners
Health information in the bulletin
