St. Gregory the Great Church helps to meet the emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of our community. The Parish Nurse Program through its health and healing ministry assists in fulfilling these needs. The Parish Nurse Program recognized the need for persons to receive support in their growth toward a healthy lifestyle and wellness. The church is an excellent setting for persons to share and learn about health promotion. It is also a comfortable place to discuss current health care issues and concerns.
