Health Ministry

The mission of the St. Jane Frances de Chantal Health Ministry is to extend the healing mission of Jesus Christ to all members of the parish community.  It is our goal to help improve the health of our parishioners by focusing on health education, wellness and prevention.

Our ministry includes all health professionals and lay volunteers who care for the health needs of parish members by organizing blood drives, blood pressure screenings, and educational seminars.  The team meets periodically to plan and conduct events.  If you are interwested in joining this ministry, please contact the church office:  586-977-8080.

Upcoming Events:

For Your Spiritual Health...
The Way of the Cross in Times of Illness
Thursday, March 8th at 2:30pm
If you are experiencing health issues, we will be offering Stations of the Cross specifically written to provide spiritual support for those suffering with illness.  Following the Stations, the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick will be offered.  In offering and praying these stations and celebrating this sacrament, it is our hope that you "will find comfort and sustain courage in the faithful promise of Christ that he will be with us to the end."

Stations of the Cross for Caregivers
Friday, March 9th at 7:00pm

If you are a caregiver for someone, anyone, this is for you.  Do you help take care of a family member, a neighbor, or is your profession in the health, emergency fields, etc.?  Caregiving demands your time and commitment.  The prayers of the Stations are written specially to provide support and inspiration for you.  Take this opportunity to spend some quiet time with God, away from the demands of caregiving.  Come and take care of yourself in reflection and prayer.
