Health & Wellness: New Name, and More, for Nursing Apostolate


After many years of operating under the name of “Nursing Apostolate”, the group which coordinates Red Cross blood drives and monthly blood pressure checks for the parish and parishioners will now be called the “Health & Wellness Apostolate”. 

Following in the footsteps of Mary Jo Rohr and Verla Hoffman, who led the Nursing Apostolate for many years, are Maggie Hagan and Carol Samsel.  Thanks to the services, processes, and procedures Mary Jo and Verla put in place, expanding the services of the Health & Wellness Apostolate is quite feasible, if there is interest.  To gauge the health and wellness interests within the parish family, you are kindly asked to participate in a very short survey (click here to access); the results will be used by the Health & Wellness Apostolate for strategic planning purposes.

Parishioners who work in the health care industry are welcome and encouraged to participate in the Health & Wellness Apostolate.
