Health Ministry

The mission of the Health Ministry is to provide a compassionate presence in the church, integrating the practice of faith with the practice of health -- an expression of God’s love for His people. All Saints Health Ministry provides the following services within a faith-based environment because holistic health is more than the absence of disease: education, counseling, referrals and advocacy. While we do not provide “hand-on” nursing, we have organized the All Saints CareForce to provide practical, emotional and spiritual support to any parishioner with health concerns.
