  • The Health Ministry Board meets the 2nd Thursday of the month September to May at 6:30 pm at St. Mary's.  All are welcome to attend to share ideas or ask questions.   

  • Blood pressure screening is available on the 3rd Saturday after 4:30 Mass and after 8:00 and 9:15 Mass on the 3rd Sunday of each month.

  • The Grief Support Group, Meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 9 am at St. Mary's church.  If you cannot make the 9 am group does that mean grief support is not available for you? Most certainly NOT!  Maybe the group setting is not for you, or maybe the time the group meets does  not mesh well with your schedule?  Maybe you prefer meeting face to face or talking on the phone?  Whatever your preference it can be accommodated.  Our Grief Support mission statement is to let you know - You are not alone in your grief.  " Yes- at first one is sort of concussed and 'life has no taste and no direction'.  One soon discovers, however, that grief is not a state but a process - like a walk in a winding valley with a new prospect at every bend."  From The Collected Letters of C.S. Lewis, Vol. III, compiled in Yours, Jack   PLEASE NOTE: Call Bob Gionet, RN 887-1766, option 3 if you have questions or would like to talk about grief support.

  • Cancer Support Group  has begun at St. Mary's church the FIRST TUESDAY of each month at 6:30 pm, weather permitting.  The group is for anyone;  who has or has had cancer, with a family member or friend with cancer.  The group supports each other with helpful hints and/or suggestions learned from experience.  The group maintains strict confidentiality.  All are welcome. 
  • Remember to check the Parish website calendar for upcoming Health Ministry events.  The next event is scheduled for Saturday, October 21st in St. Mary's School Gym.
