Parish Nurse ProgramStay healthy, stay Catholic
Parish nurses are available to perform blood pressure checks monthly after all Masses (usually the third weekend). In November, the screenings are offered at the Christmas Bazaar in the Ave Maria Hall. Each year, a blood drive is held in July on a Sunday morning.
Healthy Steps in Motion (HSIM): A senior aerobics and exercise class is offered every Monday and Thursday from 9: 30 – 10: 30 AM in Ave Maria Hall. The program is open to all for a nominal donation. Registration with the Parish Nurse is needed in order to participate.
The nurses provide health information in the weekly bulletin and newsletters. Information is posted on the kiosk in the connector lobby about health-related programs and events.
“I greet you, Lady, Holy Queen, Holy Mary, Mother of God, Virgin who became the Church, chosen by the most holy Father of Heaven; consecrated to holiness through His most holy and beloved Son and the Holy Spirit, the Comforter. In you was and is the whole fullness of grace and everything that is good.”
St. Francis of Assisi
