Our mission as the Health and Wellness Committee of Transfiguration Church is to raise the level of awareness for our parishioners for living lives of total wellness so that they follow healthy lifestyles and take preventive measures through health screenings. Giving attention to all aspects of holism, especially the spiritual, our hope is that we will live more integrated lives.
We open each meeting with this prayer:
Dear God, as members of the Transfiguration Catholic Church’s Health & Wellness Committee, please guide us in our responsibilities and actions. We are grateful and honored to be a part of this committee and are aware of its opportunities, sensitivities, and challenges. Let us always be mindful that You are the focus of this committee and through Your spirit and guidance, may we make this committee a worthwhile and positive source for our parishioners and for each other.
Attention All Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, and Physicians!! Chairperson Needed for Health and Wellness Ministry!!
For over the past year, the Health and Wellness Ministry at Transfiguration Catholic Church has been actively seeking a nurse, nurse practitioner, physician's assistant, or a physician to assume the role of chairperson. Due to the enormous amount of time and effort that is involved in serving as primary coordinator of Transfiguration's Emergency Preparedness Plan (Closed POD), it has become virtually impossible to serve in the capacity of the chairperson of the Health and Wellness Ministry, at the same time.
Since its inception, the Health and Wellness Ministry has been a true asset to the parish members of Transfiguration Catholic Church, as well as our community, at large. In a healthcare system that sometimes makes one feel lost, it is essential for our parish family members to have access to resources that promote the total well-being of the individual—not only physically, but spiritually and emotionally, as well. Over the years, the Health and Wellness Ministry has provided such resources to our Transfiguration Family in the form of educational seminars, various screenings, preventive care measures, and a health fair. These will continue to be made available to our parish members if an aforementioned healthcare provider is willing to step forward and assume the role of chairperson for the Health and Wellness Ministry. Unless this happens, the Health and Wellness Ministry–which has been in place for over the past twenty years at Transfiguration Catholic Church—will, unfortunately, be unable to continue.
Therefore, if you are a healthcare provider in the previously mentioned capacity, then please prayerfully consider leading the Health and Wellness Ministry forward for the sake and welfare of our parish family.
