Health & Wellness Ministry

healthMission Statement: Health & Wellness Ministry will focus on the Promotion of Health within the context of the Values, Beliefs and Practices of Holy Family Parish. Our vision is to meet the needs identified by its members.

Holy Family Parish Health & Wellness Ministry began in March 2005. Presently, we have fifteen members who are all volunteers. Many parishes have a paid Parish Nurse on staff with volunteer assistance. Our small group thus far accomplished much in obtaining information from the American Nurses Association, Board of Nursing and Community Resources to help plan projects. One grand accomplishment was obtaining for the parish a free “AED” (Heart Defibrillator) for our campus. A few essential parish staff have been trained for the AED’s use. We man the First Aid booth at the Parish Festivals. A “CPR” training class was held and completed by those parishioners who signed up.

We provide blood pressure screening on a regular basis for all parishioners. Please check the Parish bulletin or see the information below for more details- Come Check Up !

  • Blood Pressure Screenings will take place on the weekend of November 21st and 22nd.
