Free Blood Pressure Screening Clinic – Sunday, April 2, 2017
The Health Ministry will hold their monthly free blood pressure screening clinic on Sunday, April 2, 2017 in the parish hall from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Uncontrolled high blood pressure increases your risk of serious health problems, including heart attack and stroke. You can have high blood pressure (hypertension) for years without any symptoms. Even without symptoms, damage to blood vessels and your heart continues and can be detected. Fortunately, high blood pressure can be easily detected, and once you know you have high blood pressure, you can work with your doctor to control it. Please make it a point to drop by this free clinic and let the nurses of our parish help you monitor your blood pressure.
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.
