Parish Nurse Program
The Parish nurse’s role focuses on personal health counseling, health education, referrals, wellness promotions, advocacy and the integration of faith and healing.
Our nurses are volunteers and members of our church community. The program provides health screenings and consultation including blood pressure, hearing, cholesterol and diabetes education, as well as other educational programs. Flu vaccine clinics are held when vaccine is available. The Parish Nurse Program also provides home visits for Parishioners who are unable to come to the church.
For information about becoming a Parish Nurse Program volunteer, or for more information about the services provided, please contact the Parish Office at 669-7444.
The Parish Nurse Program is a collaboration between local faith congregations and Catholic Medical Center’s Community Services Program. It is a cooperative effort of greater Manchester congregations of various faiths and CMC to reclaim the church’s ministry of health and healing of mind, body and spirit. St. Joseph Cathedral is a participating church, along with 13 other churches in the region.
The mission of the Parish Nurse Program is to assist local faith communities in their efforts to provide spiritual, physical, psychological and social care to their members and their neighborhoods.
