Do you not know that your body is a temple of the holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
The Wellness Ministry is, first and foremost, Christ-centered. This ministry tries to imitate the example of Christ, who healed bodies in a spiritual setting. The Wellness Ministry’s philosophy is to minister to people within the trilogy of body, mind and spirit, and within the individual and Catholic community at large. It is a holistic ministry that helps parishioners obtain emotional and spiritual support, providing practical assistance necessary to maintain well being, while promoting the connection between faith and healing.
There are many opportunities for individuals who would like to help with this ministry. The following are some examples:
- Individuals interested in a holistic healthy lifestyle, with a representation from all age groups
- An individual who can write, summarize data, and organize material to follow up with parish staff when necessary
- Healthcare providers to volunteer for blood pressure screenings
- Individuals who are interested in coordinating a specific event of interest
