The Health and Wellness Ministry of St. Christine Parish is devoted to raising awareness and promoting action on behalf of holistic life issues by providing a forum for discussion, communication and action. We strive to encourage individuals and the parish continue to be alert, sensitive and proactive regarding an understanding of the mind/body/spirit issues which enhance or interfere with the freedom to live, love, worship and serve in the Spirit of Jesus within a community.
The Health and Wellness Ministry is a diverse group of parishioners who volunteer their time and talent to promote health and wellness within the parish and surrounding community. The Health and Wellness Ministry includes anyone who is called by God to a ministry of service rooted in Jesus Christ’s healing example. Membership is open to all parishioners and includes educators, young adults, care givers, and health care professionals.
