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.
