Attn Medical Professional Parishioners

We need your help!

Our Parish Health Ministry & Medical Supply Closet Ministry are both in need of new members and leadership.    Please see below  to learn more about each of these ministries or contact the parish office at olcparish@olcparish.net.

Parish Health Ministry

WHO: We are looking for Nurses, EMTs, Doctors, anyone who is qualified in the medical field to assist us with our monthly blood pressure clinics.

WHAT: Schedule, organize and manage blood pressure clinics at our parish after Masses seven times per year.

WHEN: You may schedule which weekend work best for you and for the ministry.  You personally do not have to serve each time.  Our hope is to have enough ministers for this ministry that they only must serve once or twice per year.

HOW: Are you interested in helping?  Please contact Lynn Weber at 616-469-9393 or lweber06@icloud.com or contact the parish office.

Medical Equipment Closet Ministry

WHO: We are looking for Nurses, EMTs, Doctors, anyone who is qualified in the medical field to assist us in managing our medical equipment closet.

WHAT: Our Medical Equipment Closet is a collection of medical equipment that can be borrowed by our parishioners.  Everything from crutches to bath chairs to walkers and wheel chairs.  The ministry is designed to allow our parishioners to borrow the items instead of purchasing them when insurance does not cover the entire cost.  Ministers of this ministry will organize, maintain and distribute the equipment we have available.

WHEN: Times vary depending on need, however as a minister of this ministry you would be able to schedule what time works best for you and the parishioner to meet.

HOW: Are you interested in helping?  Please contact Maureen Gaynor at jamoegaynor@gmail.com or contact the parish office.
