Mission Statement: We are dedicated to continuing the healing ministry of Jesus by providing quality compassionate care for the whole person. We accept the challenge as parish nurses to educate, counsel, refer, and act as an advocate in our ministry of healing.
As Christ treated the multitudes with love and care, so also we will treat those seeking our guidance. We will continue to allow the Holy Spirit to lead us into avenues of growth as holistic care givers. We will trust our knowledge, a gift of the Holy Spirit, in assessing the needs before us. As ministers of health, we will take time to renew our own minds and bodies, to allow to feel God’s healing touch.
Alcohol Awareness Month is an opportunity to raise awareness of alcohol abuse and encourage people to make healthy safe choices.
Do you drink alone when you feel sad or angry?
Does your drinking ever make you late for work?
Does your drinking worry your family?
Do you ever drink after telling yourself you won’t?
Do you ever forget what you did while drinking?
Do you ever get headaches or a hangover?
How can Alcohol Awareness Month make a difference?
We can use this month to raise awareness about alcohol abuse and take action to prevent it, both at home and in the community. Here are just a few ideas: Ø Encourage friends or family members to make small changes, like keeping track of their drinking and setting drinking limits. Ø Share tips with parents to help them talk with their kids about the risks of alcohol use. Ø Ask doctors and nurses to talk to their patients about the benefits of drinking less or quitting.
