Mission of the OLMC Parish Nurse Ministry

We are a group of volunteers dedicated to the health and spiritual needs of parishioners, the church and its community.  As Christians we strive for wholeness of body, mind and spirit.  While not duplicating existing resources and services, this volunteer ministry can help with health education, referrals, advocacy and support.

Weekdays on Wednesday mornings after the 9 am Mass

The first Sunday of every month 8:30-10:30 am in the lower level of church.

We gather for 6-8 weeks in the fall, then again around the holidays when coping can be difficult for those dealing with the loss of a loved one.
