Blood Pressure Ministry Volunteers Needed

woman-3187087_1920.jpg

Would you like to use your gifts to serve your parish on the blood pressure screening team? Looking for two volunteers to join our 10:30AM Mass team!  We could use one person, not necessarily in health care, but with an interest in helping out, in the facilitator role, to help retrieve records, help participants fill out their paperwork and pass out health related flyers.  We could also use one person with a health care background, who has been formally trained to take blood pressures (e.g.  MAs, NAs, LPNs, RNs, EMTs) using a traditional cuff with a manual inflation bulb and aneroid dial.

Screening takes place just once per month on the second weekend of each month.  Training and shadowing provided.  Large sub pool for the weekends you’re unable to volunteer.  For more information or to sign up contact Roseann Dichraff at rdichraff@gbres.org, or at the parish office at 336-7768.  Thank you for considering! 

 

National Caregivers Month

November is National Family Caregivers Month

May we give thanks to those who care and comfort their family members and close friends who are sick, homebound, chronically ill, and/or grieving loss. May we hold them close in our hearts.

A Prayer for the Caregiver

Unknown and often unnoticed,

you are a hero nonetheless.

For your love, sacrificial, is God at His best.

You walk by faith in the darkness

of the great unknown,

and your courage, even in weakness,

gives life to your beloved.

You hold shaking hands

and provide the ultimate care:

Your presence, the knowing,

that you are simply there.

You rise to face the giant

of disease and despair.

It is our finest hour,

though you may be unaware.

You are resilient, amazing,

and beauty unexcelled,

You are the caregiver

and you have done well!

— Bruce McIntyre
