Mission Statement of the St. Paul Health Ministry
The Health Ministry manages a free medical equipment loan program for parishioners. Portable equipment available includes wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, canes, bedside commodes and shower seats. If you, or someone in your family is in need of this type of equipment please call Clara Heimericks at (916) 689-3932 or the office and we will do what we can to help you.
Flu Season Is Hear
Flu season is here. If you are sick, or think you might be sick, or are concerned about contracting an illness, you should refrain from receiving the Blood of Christ. Be assured that “since Christ is sacramentally present under each of the species, communion under the species of bread alone makes it possible to receive all the fruit of Eucharistic grace.”
Volunteers are always needed. They need not be members of the medical community. You are needed to : make phone calls, serve as interpreters, help set up and take down before and after events, to facilitate or teach a class and provide help as needed. If you are interested call Clara at 689-3932.
