“Speak as your mind directs, and always act with more courage.”

Catherine McAuley, RSM, Founder of the Sisters of Mercy
In many communities, licensed practical nurses, physicians, social workers, clergy, and others serve their faith communities as health ministers.

Together, faith community nurses and health ministers are making a positive difference in peoples’ lives through:

  • Accessing resources
  • Advocacy
  • Health and wellness
  • Health education
  • Health promotion

Through their actions, faith community nurses and health ministers reaffirm the church’s role in ministering to the whole person – body, mind, and spirit – and become instruments of healing.

We invite faith communities, faith-based organizations, and care providers who are interested in learning more about faith community nursing and health ministry to contact Bill Connolly at 412-759-5115.
