Parish Nurse Ministry

Parish Nurse Ministry

Parish Nursing is a specialized practice of professional community nursing that promotes good health and support within the context of a faith community at Christ the King. Health is not only viewed as an absence of disease but also as a sense of being in harmony with self, others, and God. Healing is promoted by integrating the body, mind, and spirit to create wholeness and a sense of well-being even when curing may not occur.

His divine power has given us everything we need. 2 Peter 1:3

The following programs offer you specific opportunities... to befriend and support other parishioners and to be a part of what our Lord calls us to be.

Integrator of Faith and Health
The Parish Nurse Ministry encourages higher levels of wellness by supporting both spiritual and physical health. One way of accomplishing this goal is through the Eucharistic Ministry for the Homebound. Trained team members make weekly in-home visits bringing the Holy Eucharist to our parishioners that are unable to attend Mass. 

Health Educator
Each week you will find health topics of interest in the Parish Nurse Tip of the Week in the Bulletin. Do you have a health concern you would like to discuss? Confidential meetings are available to discuss personal needs, life transitions as we age from caring for a loved one; home health-care resources; assisted living information; and end of life issues including hospice care. The Parish Nurse is available Monday through Friday in the parish center.
