The Wellness Ministry consists of THREE separate ministries.

These volunteers provide short term assistance for our parishioners in basic areas such as: Meals, funeral luncheons, Household help during a crisis, Transportation to Mass, appointments and errands, and Emergency babysitting.

This team is made up of several health professionals who focus on the parish community's health of body, mind and spirit. Some of the activities include: Blood pressure screening, Flu shot clinics, CPR training classes, and health resources that include information, education and programs.
