Health Ministry at St. Monica promotes the spiritual health of the whole person and is supported by a Providence St. John’s Faith Community Nurse (Parish Nurse). Through a mind, body, and spirit approach, Health Ministry offers health and wellness information to our parish community. This approach expands and builds upon our parish’s traditional outreach of visitation to the sick, support groups, and referrals to community agencies.
This past year our programming included very informative presentations on Women's Health, Men's Health, Catholic Teaching on End-of-Life Care, and Red Cross Blood Drives. This summer, we hosted our Healthy Living Speaker Series (more information below), and now it's time for our next event . . . Focus on the Facts: Stroke Prevention & Treatment!

Contemplating the end of life (either one’s own, or that of people we love), can be a daunting and confusing task. But our faith provides us with helpful teachings and guidance that can help clear the confusion during a difficult time, and that can help us walk the journey in grace. To help us gain a better understanding, Dr. Karen Pavic-Zabinski and Tue Nguyen will explain and clarify Catholic teachings on end-of-life care, focusing in particular on advanced directives.
