When ministering to the health needs of the congregation, parish nurses try to bring the therapeutic qualities of the church, community, and faith of God to the healing.
A parish nurse is a registered nurse with additional training in holistic ministry who assists members of the congregation to become more aware of their health and to move toward a fuller sense of wholeness. Parish nurses are health counselors and educators, community resource liaisons and facilitators. They coordinate existing services and supplement them with a Christian dimension of health and caring.
By bringing health resources and information into the community through our church, parish nurses can provide a personal approach to preventive health care. This will ensure that access to quality health services is made readily available to the congregation and will help the church fulfill its mission of being a healing community.
The church’s primary role in healthcare is to promote it, not to provide it. For the church, health is a ministry, not an industry.
The Parish Nurse Ministry Program was developed to help meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the whole person.
Health is linked with spiritual formation. Only if we recover the prayer of the heart are we able to meet God as a total person.
As a member of the parish staff, our nurses have an office located on the main floor of the church.
This parish nurse program is a volunteer ministry of the church and there is no cost for this service.
