Epiphany Health Ministry
EPIPHANY HEALTH MINISTRY
If you are a practicing or retired healthcare professional, or an interested lay person you are eligible to be a part of our Epiphany Health MInistry. We are involved in many aspects of our Epiphany community. On the third weekend of every month, nurses are available after each Mass for Blood Pressure Screening. The Oklahoma Blood Institute has a blood drive here four times a year. We assist with this drive.
The nurses (and any other interested member of Epiphany Health Ministry) are invited to attend the Annual Faith Community Nurses Conference held in March. This is an opportunity to grow in our spirituality and to hear what Faith Community Nurses across the country are doing in communities across the globe.
The Faith Community Nurses Foundation Course is offered yearly. Epiphany supported one of our nurse’s attendance at this two-weekend workshop.
Annual Flu Shots are a regular part of helping to keep our faith community healthy. The Visiting Nurses Association offers these shots and our volunteers assist.
A Tai Chi Class is being held twice weekly for three months and is supported by our Health Ministry.
Yearly, we offer a Breast Care Screening through Mercy Hospital. This usually takes place during the month of May.During the first weekend in Lent, we help Epiphany members spend time with God by walking our LABYRINTH, an ancient prayer tool that allows individuals the opportunity to spend quiet, reflective time in a peaceful and serene sfcetting. A perfect way to prepare ourselves for the coming of our Lord at Easter.
