The Health Ministry Team at St. Mary’s Parish gathers as a small faith community focused on care of the whole person – body, mind and spirit, in a parish setting. Our ministry follows in Jesus’ footsteps in caring for the whole person created in God’s image. We discern ways in which we can be of service to the parish as a resource for whole person health.
Health Ministry Team
members include parishioners Donna Doran, Marilyn Dueweke, Judy Kennedy, Jane and Morgan Lucid, Vincent Seid, Dorothy Smith, and Donna Spagna.
We invite parishioners who have an interest in spirituality and health to consider joining this ministry. Meetings are held in the Parish Conference Room from 8:15 am to 9:30 am on the last Wednesday of every other month. For more information about meeting dates or other questions call
