What is a Health and Wellness Ministry?
There has been a surge of scientific research on the relationship between religious faith and health. Health care professionals and clergy alike are becoming more aware of the significant role religious faith has on a person's physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
In an effort to address these issues in St. Joseph's Parish, we have developed the Health and Wellness Ministry. Our framework is that of health promotion, disease prevention, and response.
The Health and Wellness Ministry provides resources, education, and ministry opportunities that focus on promoting health and wellness.
The Health and Wellness Ministry provides the parish with education and a variety of activities that focus on preventing disease and empowering individuals to be responsible stewards of their body, mind and spirit.
One of the goals of the health and Wellness Ministry is to serve the faith community by responding to actual problems and/or needs that affect health and healing.
Blood Pressure Screenings, Health talks on nutrition, stress, sun protection, ect.
