This ministry integrates traditions of the Christian community with the knowledge and tools of modern health care. This goal is achieved through:
Interdependence among God’s people
Integration and balance of mind, body, and spirit
The PHM is guided by the parish nurse in collaboration with the pastoral staff and by the PHM Council.
