Parish nurse

Parish nursing is a ministry to individuals and families that uses health education and spiritual guidance to facilitate wholistic health (physical, psychological and spiritual),  helping to make the church a healing place.

The church is called to continue Christ’s mission by serving those in need. This call is to do as Jesus did – to be God’s healing and reconciling presence in the world.


What is a Parish Nurse?

A parish nurse is a currently licensed, registered nurse who is committed to helping people meet their whole needs of body, mind, and spirit by:

Integrating faith & health.
Providing health counseling.
Providing health education to promote wellness.
Developing support groups.
Being a referral source and liaison to community resources.
Being a heath advocate to encourage use of available services, to help make health decisions and to work with community leaders and agencies.

A parish nurse combines the skills of nursing assessment with spiritual support/caring to meet the needs of the individual within the faith community.

A Parish Nurse is not…

A substitute for medical care, community health nursing, or social agencies, but rather works in partnership with these.
A replacement for any health care service.
A replacement for pastoral care.

Get to know our parish nurses, Delores and Jane. They are awesome servants of God and His people at Oak Heights.
